Introduction: The Bun-Leng Project aims to combine research and performance together. We are eager to find lesser-known chamber music pieces originally written for saxophones and to collaborate with composers in commissioning pieces that will help us discover new sound possibilities of our ensemble. More importantly, we would like to share the result of our collaborative work by performing in front of audiences all around the world.
This project aims to be a flexible ensemble in order to perform programs including music for a saxophone duo, saxophone trio, saxophone quartet, saxophone consort, the trio with piano, with electronics… and so on. Founded by George W. Pruksavanich and Guillermo Presa, the group had its debut concert as Bun-Leng Trio at the Saturday Recital Series in St taught at the 10th Mallorca Saxophone Festival (Palma de Mallorca, March 2018), the 18th World Saxophone Congress (Zagreb, Croatia, July 2018), the Thailand – Malaysia Concert Tour (visiting the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of music, the Bansomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University and the Yamaha Music Hall Bangkok and Yamaha Music hall Kuala Lumpur, August 2018), the Crossover Contemporary Concert (The Hague, Netherlands, November 2018) and the 2nd Poznan sax event with Jerome Laean (Poznan, Poland December 2018).
Our Future events include masterclasses and performances at the Bilbao Conservatory and the 11th Mallorca Saxophone Festival (April 2019), the Borough New Music Concert Series (London, January 2020), a Concert tour through Thailand, Malaysia and China and the recording of a CD with the pieces that have been written for them.
