(1) International Saxophone Competition Josip Nochta

The purpose of the competition, to be held in Zagreb every three years, is to further promote the performance and composing activities for this distinctive instrument. The year 2014, when the 1st Competition was held, was Professor Josip Nochta 90 th birthday anniversary. He was the first saxophone professor at the Music Academy of the University of Zagreb and one of the first promoters of classical saxophone in this part of Europe. He therefore deserved to have this competition named after him. At the same time we have been joining the celebration of the Adolphe Sax bicentennial, the 200 th anniversary of the genius music instrument designer's birth.
