Pedrosaxo performs Paganini Caprice no.5
During his international tours and due to his personal style, Pedrosaxo has been asked numerous times whether he had been trained as a classical musician before breaking the boundaries of the saxophone and himself. That question was the inspiration for this video. He is happy to share with you one of the most exceptional challenges he has ever faced, playing one of the most prominent pieces in the classical repertoire.
Pedrosaxo (Pedro Rafael Garcia Moreno) is currently an adjunct saxophone professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University), and a Vandoren and P. Mauriat artist.
Materials used in the video:
P. Mauriat alto saxophone "Master 97".
Vandoren alto mouthpiece "AL3".
Vandoren alto ligature "Optimum".
Vandoren alto reeds "V21".
An honors graduate of the Conservatory of Granada, Spain, (and now living in Nashville, TN) Pedrosaxo has revolutionized the saxophone. He has synthesized his many interests – imitation, acting, video gaming, and composition into a breathtaking and truly unique artistic statement.
Quite simply, he has obliterated all previous technical and artistic boundaries, and has achieved it in ways that are fascinatingly beautiful, haunting, appealing, and awe-inspiring.
He appeared as a finalist on Spain’s nationally-televised “Spanish Got Talent?” and has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
