TD Toronto Jazz Festival with Dialectica Saxophone Quartet

  • Church of the Redeemer 162 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M5S 1M4 Canada (map)

Hogtown Brass Quintet and Dialectica Saxophone Quartet push the boundaries of their traditional ensembles with an innovative and entertaining program in this free concert presented by TD Toronto Jazz Festival.

About Dialectica:
With equal parts jazz-trained and classically-trained saxophonists, Dialectica attempts to find an aesthetic truth through the discourse of these two musical points of view, akin to the Dialectic method of philosophy found in Plato’s Socratic Dialogues. Tackling philosophical inquiries even Socrates himself couldn’t foresee:
-Can a current Canadian identity be found where the lineages of European art music and North American art music meet?
-Can the saxophone occupy a space in the collective unconscious that lies beyond that of Careless Whisper and Baker Street?
-Can the world handle more than one female saxophonist in one place?
