Rova will present it’s first ever concert at the San Francisco Public Library. The Main Branch will be a good venue and a resonant space for the band to present new works. The concert will conclude with a Q&A with the audience.
Rova Saxophone Quartet – Think of the human voice in music. The most primal of instruments, it can melt you or move you to tears on the spot. Then it’s the saxophone, one-step removed from the human voice, and the next most powerful messenger in music. Johnny Hodges, Albert Ayler, Steve Lacy, Pharoah Sanders, Oliver Lake, King Curtis, Tim Berne, John Butcher – to name only a few of the many singular voices on the instrument who, with one short phrase or even one sound, can take your breath away, or excite and inspire you to great heights.
