Milan Savic was one of the first students of the Novi Sad Academy of Arts
who had the opportunity to learn how to perform classical reportoare on the
instrument that is best known in jazz music – the saxophone! In order to promote
classical saxophone and all the different genres this instrument is attached with,
including jazz, four years ago he founded the first saxophone festival in Belgrade –
– that is held at the beginning of every autumn.
He played many premieres of Serbian renowed composers, gave numerous solo
recitals and master classes across Serbia and abroad and his tour in
France with the pianist Uki Ovaskainen was very noted. Because of his
great achievements and artistic engagements the French Ministry of
culture awarded him this year with the Order of Arts and Letters!
If you ever wonder how saxophone can sound like spiced up with Balkan motives,
Aleksandar Sedlar's composition with the great solo by Milan Savic, of course!
