Kristal Klaar: saxhorn

The first concert in the series of the 5th edition of “Kristal Klaar” is entirely dedicated to the saxhorn and will be conducted by Frans Violet. Once more, a selection of young, talented musicians of Kunsthumaniora Brussel are ready to share their passion with you. The Brass Quintet Willebroek will perform outstanding during the second part of the evening.

Jonas en Lode Violet will introduce the warm sound of the saxhorn during the first part of the concert. The two talented sons of Frans Violet prepaired a wide program to demonstrate the virtuosity and the musicianship of the instrument. The twin brothers will conclude their contribution by performing a composition, that was specially created by Roger Derongé for their attention. These young talents are accompanied by Karine Calomme on piano.


Brass Quintet Willebroek is conducted by Frans Violet. Their repertoire consists of a mixture of brass band compositions and arrangements of broader music styles. One can hear beautiful lyrical work, but also virtuoso performances that values the typical soft brass sound. A fascinating mixture of different musical genres.
