About this Work

Commissioned by Concorso Internazionale "2 Agosto" in Bologna, Italy, Omnifenix is a captivating composition that combines directed improvisation on saxophone and drum kit with an orchestra. Originally written for the renowned tenor player Michael Brecker, the piece showcases a unique collaboration where the drum set player acts as a translator, reinforcing the orchestra's foundation while responding to the soloist. Described as a compelling synthesis of jazz and art music, Omnifenix allows the saxophone soloist's individuality to shine, creating a remarkable and harmonious musical experience.
