"If we had to describe our musical genre we would probably say that instrumental Crossover music is what we play, but what does it really mean? Classical, Jazz, Pop, Traditional, Dance, Rock 'n' Roll, Folk, etc. – are all ways to describe one of the few things in our life which doesn’t have to be described – Music. We believe that music is not only what you play but rather how you play. Following this principle, we are not limiting ourselves to a certain musical genre when deciding on a program. We offer our audience a multi-cultural journey through various music styles and times. Due to lack of existing repertoire written originally for saxophone and harp, we enjoy the freedom to include in our program known hits such as George Harrison's famous "Something", baroque music like Antonio Vivaldi's "La Folia", Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla's all-time hit "Libertango", or new pieces composed originally for us, and to play them in fresh surprising arrangements. Our biggest inspiration is the unique connection between us and our audience. This is being established through a direct and interactive contact with our audience and creates an expereience in which music becomes a universal language and a form of expression that opens up a path directly to every listener's heart".
