ABOUT

German Saxophonist Hannah Koob was described as a musician with "a warm and singing sound even in the extreme registers, the ability to create long vocal passages, a flexible tone-colour and, a very accomplished technique".

Saxophone lessons for several years with Christine Rall (member of the Raschèr saxophone quartet) provided her a deeper knowledge about the classical saxophone played in the tradition of the saxophone pioneer Sigurd Raschèr. To gain detailed knowledge she attended many masterclasses in Europe.

In 2016, she moved to Tilburg, Netherlands, where she is studying at the Academy for Music and Performing Arts with Andreas van Zoelen.

For Hannah, one of the most important responsibilities for the future of the classical saxophone is playing new music. There are so many unexplored avenues for the instrument which is why she specialized in modern repertoire.

As important as playing new music is making chamber music for her. Hannah holds the chair for tenor saxophone in the BRON saxofoonkwartet since 2016 and plays regularly with symphony- and string orchestras.

As an orchestral musician Hannah was playing with, amongst others, Philharmonie Zuid-Nederland, SWR Symphonieorchester and the Staatskapelle Dresden.


As a soloist she has performed with orchestras like the Symfonieorkest Flevoland, Alkmaars Symfonieorkest, the Trajectum String Orchestra Utrecht and many more.

Hannah Koob was featured on national radio in the Netherlands and her past concerts have included performances at the World Saxophone congress in Zagreb, Croatia in 2018 and the Schostakowitsch Tage in Gohrisch in 2019.
