Five saxophones tackle Beethoven's fifth symphony - innovative crossover between jazz and classical music.
Yes, it is audacious indeed, the idea of renovating the very symbol of all that is classical in music. For this reason it becomes very appealing to rewrite Beethoven's symphonic score for five saxophones without losing the imposing character of the piece. Only once has someone dared to transcribe the symphony for two hands and that was Franz Liszt. highly recommended by the German Magazine
