The Italian Saxophone Quartet
The Italian Saxophone Quartet was founded in 1982 by four saxophone soloists, close friends determined to join together to perform chamber music for saxophone at the very highest artistic level. Since then, they have played to wide acclaim in more than 500 concerts in Italy (including the most important concert institutions), France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Japan, USA, Sweden, Lebanon, Bermuda and Russia. The quartets concerts have been recorded and broadcast by the Italian RAI-Radio 1 and RAI-Radio 3 as well as by Swedish, German, Japanese and American national radios.
The quartet won a number of important chamber music competitions including the unanimous First Prize, plus a special prize, at the prestigious Premio Ancona in Italy.
Among their important projects, in 1999 the quartet performed Berios work Outis with the Symphony Orchestra of Milans Teatro alla Scala. They appeared as soloists with the Malipiero Symphony Orchestra in works by Piazzolla and Dubois, and collaborated with the Fonè String Quartet on the creation a new arrangement of the Art of the Fugue by J.S.
