The "Minimal Distance Project" has stemmed from the need to experience classical music in a modern sound, to restore the idea that what is popular is what inspires us to go further, what you hear everyday, what is closest to us and what causes reactions. MD thrives on creating disorder and disrupting what is known to be established. This way the viewer is prevented from knowing the specific result of a concert because the sound often changes dramatically.
An extreme declamation of music that comes from the tradition where there is an intense mixture of sadness and oblivion, where rhythmic sequences and passionate forces are present. The MD Saxophone Quartet is particularly appreciated because they seem to be able to restore a lost link between the audience and the performer. Clearly on an international standard, they manage to rediscover the classical saxophone repertoire from original transcriptions of these classics. Being distinguished by a fluid style and intense obsession for detail, this group offers their listeners brilliant performances in a rigorous, inspiring and seductive atmosphere.
