Wilson Poffenberger - "Paths of Obscurity"

  • Fondation des Etats-Unis 15 Boulevard Jourdan Paris, Île-de-France, 75014 France (map)

My final saxophone recital in Paris, featuring pieces reflecting my work while studying in France. Much of my experience in Paris has been shrouded in a cloak of obscurity...a constant search for balance. Living in a foreign place was difficult, but through this search I found success in my surroundings. This program showcases music that I have experienced whiling struggling to find this balance.
