Burgen & Spectaculum in Prissian: SAGS Quartet

Prissiano/Prissian, Tisens/Tesimo, Meran/Merano and environs
from center
The four musicians Sonja Wallnöfer, Greta Franzelin, Sonja Oberkofler and Alex Designori came together through their shared South Tyrolean origins and energetic passion for chamber music. The four saxophonists completed their musical training in various places in Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. The ensemble has been sharing its passion for music with audiences since 2020. The SAGS Quartet has already performed at various concert halls and festivals, including the Brucknerhaus Linz, the Alpen Classica Festival and the Kulturverein Musik & Kirche. The ensemble's repertoire includes original works and arrangements of classical and contemporary music, which reflect the broad spectrum of tonal facets of the saxophone. The ensemble's creativity and constant curiosity for other art forms helps the quartet to constantly come up with new ideas and ultimately interdisciplinary collaborations and performances. In this way, the SAGS Quartet gains a foothold in the world of music theatre, but also explores the fusion of literature and music. This joy of experimentation is uniquely reflected in the concert programmes. The four saxophonists have not only distinguished themselves as concert musicians but also as educators. In this regard, the ensemble holds the young audience, the listeners of tomorrow, close to their hearts. With their music education program, they visit elementary and middle schools with the aim of bringing the world of classical saxophone closer to young audiences. The SAGS Quartet is a Newzik artist.
