Filip & Natsuko

Since meeting each other, studying at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, Natsuko and Filip have build up an impressive repertoire. 

The refreshing combination of saxophone and piano lends itself for all kinds of music, and Filip and Natsuko fully exploit this. Their repertoire ranges from classical to modern music. Whether they play Grieg or Gershwin, Schumann, Stravinsky or swinging jazz music by Duke Ellington, they can always do this in an inspiring and compelling way.

Besides performing together a lot, they each have an extensive solo carrier, which leads them to perform around the world.
