BOOK NOW

The Ferio Saxophone Quartet present a concert with the theme of nature and cities of the world. The music spans from the baroque to modern day, performed in bespoke arrangements for saxophone quartet. Journey is at the heart of tonight – whether floating down the River Thames in Handel’s ever popular Water Music, written for the concert on the River Thames in 1717, or Gershwin’s anecdotal An American in Paris. The concert concludes with Ciudades (Cities) – which has been recorded by the Ferio Quartet. It is a series of musical sketches of cities that have a special meaning to the composer.

 

As one of the leading British saxophone quartets among the new generation of artists, the Ferio Saxophone Quartet consistently receives a highly enthusiastic reception from audiences and critics alike. Winner of the 2015 Royal OverSeas League’s Ensemble Competition, the quartet was also a Park Lane Group Artist and St John’s Smith Square Young Artist for 2016-2017.

“Playing and music alike sport an irresistible exuberance.”

BBC Radio 3 Record Review, Andrew McGregor
