Asya Fateyeva publishes first foretaste of “Carneval

In the middle of the 19th century, the Belgian Adolphe Sax invented an instrument that extended the palette of woodwind instruments with very desirable colours. In Hector Berlioz he finds a well-known supporter and helper. He raves about the saxophones: "In my opinion the special value lies in the different beauty of the expression: soon solemnly serious and calm, soon passionate, then dreamy or melancholic like a decaying echo or like the indeterminate lamentations of wafting in the forest [...]. No other musical instrument known to me possesses this strange sound that goes to the limits of silence."

The saxophonist Asya Fateyeva makes this diversity audible in an enchanting way on her new album "Carneval". "Its ability to adapt to the different instruments and styles is limitless," says the interpreter about her instrument.

The title "Mercuzio" from the ballet suite "Romeo and Juliet" by Sergei Prokofiev is the first foretaste of Fateyeva's album "Carneval". Now available on all major platforms.
