Edition 71

The sound of saxophones is all over this edition of Festival Dag in de Branding, thanks to the contribution of our guest curator, composer Jan-Peter de Graaff. De Graaff fell in love with the instrument when he was eight years old, and he firmly believes saxophones should be a regular fixture in the symphony orchestra. ‘I try to include a part for sax in every commissioned composition, also because we have so many world-class saxophonists in the Netherlands,’ says De Graaff. The saxophone is not the only central thread through this edition of the festival: the programme also centres around the theme ‘between the city and the sea’ – highly appropriate in coastal The Hague, where De Graaff studied at the Royal Conservatoire.
