Ever since their first concert together at the Basel Cathedral in 2002, Stephan Grieder and Sam Burckhardt have given an annual concert in Basel. Even though the combination of a pipe organ and a saxophone may seem odd, the two instruments share an important common bond––wind, and thus create a perfect pair for dialogs. Stephan, with a background in classical and rock music, and Sam with a background in Blues and Jazz, bring their voices together in a broad variety of pieces, both written and improvised, traditional and non-traditional. In combining their two voices, they create a new language.
