FAVO...a heartwarming chamber & world jazz ensemble emerged from the tundra in Siberia!
Volker Schlott (DE) & Falk Breitkreuz (DE) – Fun Horn´s Reeds section, went while touring through Siberia - always just a little bit earlier to the rehearsals, to practise and experiment alone. Out of the Siberian Ice emerged a crystal-clear concept – which gives us a fresh new sound. This sound emerges out of the fusion of two soloists who imitate with soprano sax and bass clarinet only the musical language of a complete band. Out of this experiment evolves an exceptional new chamber-musical tone: It is astonishing and yet harmonious transparent and still passionate, flexible and full at the same moment.
Stylistic elements of classic, jazz, world and pop music melt into the very special FAVO-Sound. The program is composed out of FAVO´s favourites, mixed and celebrated with delight. Already in its first year this exceptional duo grooved itself directly into the hearts. The astonishing duo inspired visitors at festivals (e.g. the famous Festspiele Mecklenburg Vorpommern, St.Petersburg “ Eremitage Theatre” ) as well as in concerts in clubs and churches and a tour through East-Africa, made possible by the Goethe Institute.
In 2012 the duo became a trio! The two horn players added a voice to their unique world of sound, the warm baritone of Belgian singer Sander De Winne (BE). His flexible voice perfectly finds his way between the lower bass clarinet sounds and the lyrical high melodies of the soprano saxophone. Together they create a touching, sensitive, intense harmonious group sound!
