Saxofollia plays with mastery and ease not only classical repertoire, such as baroque or opera, but also jazz music, moving from swing to be-bop up to modern jazz.

All the pieces played by Saxofollia are compositions and original arrangements specially created to highlight the different talents of each single musician.
