There are unions that seem to have come into existence in spite of any good reason. And, strange though it may seem, each party supplements the other. This is the case of the union between organ and saxophone. It is strange, that, despite all the difference of appearance and timbre, they are brothers. Indeed the organ is a pipe instrument, as well as the saxophone, though it possesses keyboards. Tonight you have a rare opportunity to listen to a dialogue of the two instruments: they either merge in perfect harmony or argue, as if each of them were defending its priority right in the world of music. But whether their conversation is a heart to heart talk or a quarrel between friends, it is always interesting and deserves close attention of  music connoisseurs.
