Oscar was born in Argentina and has grown to become the most relevant and popular Jazz and Classical Saxophonist in South America. His story is written out in detail below in his own personal way….a modest yet most talented musician.“My first interest in music began when I was three years old with a plastic flute. I was able to play some simple songs within a week. In the primary school, they put together a small band and I got to choose the saxophone which I quickly started playing. When I was 7 years old I heard Gato Barbieri, who was very exciting and I knew for sure that the saxophone was for me 100%. I continued studying sax from then on.”
“For me, the saxophone is the most wonderful instrument that was ever invented. It is most similar to the human voice and generates sounds, nuances, and harmonicas that excite and please me. I was guided in music by my Mother who played Piano and my Father who was a professional Tango singer.”
“Since 1990 I have been teaching students of all ages individually. That is the best and only way for me to convey my musical interests. For example, today I have students of the highest performing level throughout the world who accompanied great artists like the Joe Coker, Ricardo Montaner and many others.”
“At the age of fifteen I found myself doing professional recording and playing in all the venues that most musicians aspire to. Now, at age 58, I can look back on almost 50 years of performing, recording, teaching and writing film music within the pro music genre. My lasting passion for the saxophone always motivates me. The passion and the emotion it generates in me relates to such beautiful sounds which I love and enjoy. Playing continues to be very much of my life and I like to share with the people who enjoy my interpretations”.
“I am very proud of my eldest daughter, Tamara Kreimer who was born with a saxophone by her side and at the end of her first year and before knowing how to speak, she placed the position on her lip and ask me to help her make a sound.
Today, she is a great saxophonist and the pride of her father.”
