Formed by American saxophonists Noa Even and Phil Pierick in 2009, Ogni Suono is committed to expanding and promoting the repertoire for saxophone duo by commissioning and performing new works. The duo’s international appearances include the inaugural Singapore Saxophone Symposium, Romanian-American Musical Days Festival in Sibiu (Romania), Berlin University of the Arts, Felicja Blumental Music Center in Tel Aviv, Night of the Museums Festival in Budapest, Songkhla Rajabhat University (Thailand), and World Saxophone Congresses in Scotland and France. Numerous tours throughout the United States have brought their music to cities such as New York, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, and Baltimore.
Noa and Phil have collaborated with many composers, including Ian Dicke, Quinn Collins, Ryan Carter, Claudio Gabriele, and Hong-Da Chin. Their debut album, Invisible Seams, was released in 2014 and features commissioned works. Supported by New Music USA, Ogni Suono is currently working with composers David Coll, Kate Soper, and Felipe Lara to initiate SaxoVoce, a long-term project dedicated to exploring the wide-ranging ways of synthesizing saxophone and voice. SaxoVoce was debuted on UC-Riverside’s Outpost Concert Series and at the Center for New Music in San Francisco in February 2016.
Emphasizing the importance of education, Ogni Suono regularly supplements performances with clinics, master classes, community outreach programs, and presentations. They have given clinics and master classes at many institutions, such as Lawrence Conservatory, Stanford University, University of Houston, Penn State University, Western University (Canada), and San Francisco Conservatory of Music. As winners of the 2012-2013 CMS Yamaha-in-Residence Fellowship, Ogni Suono presented outreach programs at a museum, retirement community, middle school and high school in Iowa. Additional outreach includes Lincoln Elementary School in Chicago, School of Arts and Enterprise in Pomona (CA), and Orlat Orphanage in Romania.
