Greetings from Victoria Samek
Welcome to Samek Music, the home of Clarinet & Saxophone Classic, a single resource for all things single-reed. From recordings and publications to tips and educational support with thought provoking blogs and an ever-growing library of YouTube films. I hope you’ll find lots here to interest you.
Creating Samek Music to embrace the growing catalogue of clarinet and saxophone recordings, publications and educational resources, was a significant step in bringing everything together. Making connections within the single reed community and potential newcomers through the commercial as well as educational resources, is central to the Samek Music ethos.
Here at Samek Music, you can also book me in a number of capacities. With a Masters in Performance Science from the Royal College of Music, I have gone on to develop a ground breaking approach for practice and performance: find out more. If you have any questions or comments on any subject related to the clarinet or saxophone, please do get in touch with me. I would love to hear from anyone who shares our love of these beautiful instruments and the amazing repertoire.
Through the harmonious partnership of Art and Science, a ground breaking approach to practice and performance devised by Victoria Samek.
Under the Spotlight!
An immense collection of recordings containing essential and rare repertoire from the 18th,19th and early 20th performed by world exponents of period performance. Available as a set or as 4 individual recordings is yours at the press of a button!
This recording of glorious repertoire for saxophone quartet, gives the listener a rare opportunity to hear the foremost clarinettist of the 20th century Jack Brymer, performing on soprano saxophone. Supported by extensive liner notes; a total pleasure from start to finish!
Talking about the kit that we use can be a ticklish topic, as often it is seen as trying to undermine or persuade a change. My intention is purely to share the choices I have made. While the film dates back to my first trip to the factory, it gives you a sense of the family behind the brand!
Discover Victoria’s ground-breaking process that integrates performance science with artistic integrity. Everyone can benefit from OPC and its inspirational approach – from beginner to advanced, professional to amateur, or for interview to presentation. Its strength is its simplicity in responding to questions such as “where do I start?” and “why do anxieties seem to take over?”. Never again will there feel a separation between practice and performance, but instead one powerful and committed process.
