We are

a new, Belgian chambermusic ensemble consisting of saxophone and string quartet.
The saxophone was developed by the Belgian inventor, Adolphe Sax, to serve as a bridge between the strings, woodwinds and brass in the symphonic orchestra. An instrument with a sound palette and qualities that blend perfectly with the other instruments in the orchestra. With this idea in mind, Jeroen started this new ensemble mid-2018 with friends, a quintet with saxophone and string quaret.

With this unique formation, the Núna Ensemble wants to explore new boundaries. They strive to bring original repertoire for this line-up and they work with young, Belgian composers to create new repertoire. This special project has already been invited to play at the triennial World Saxophone Conference in Zagreb. In their first program: “Sax & Strings – Crossing Borders” they looked for crossovers between classical, jazz and folk music. Discover the saxophone and string quartet as you have never heard them before.

APPLAUSE

Press

"Wonderlandschap"

“In een combinatie van een klassiek strijkkwartet met saxofoon brengt het ensemble vijf hedendaagse composities waar grensvervaging troef is. Klassiek, filmmuziek, jazz en soms naar rock verwijzende cadansen maken van dit concert een boeiende belevenis.”

– Geert Ryssen voor Jazz & Mo’
