ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The groundbreaking Apollo Saxophone Quartet has been at the forefront of the British contemporary music scene for over 26 years. The ensemble has made the largest single contribution to the saxophone quartet repertoire in the UK, commissioning and premiering over 100 works, ranging from quartets to concerti and film scores, as well as numerous creative collaborations with poet, dancers, multimedia and strings.

Established in 1985 at the Royal Northern College of Music, the multi-prizewinning ensemble (Royal OverSeas League, Tunnell Trust, Erasmus Concours Netherlands, Tokyo International Chamber Music Competition winners) quickly established a reputation for excellence and versatility, working across contemporary classical and jazz genres, regularly touring internationally and featuring in live broadcasts on Classic FM, BBC Radio and TV. The group has released six CDs to date (Decca/Argo, Black Box, Quartz), as well as being featured on many other recordings showcasing the work of individual composers (Michael Nyman, Michael Torke, Django Bates, John Casken, Joby Talbot etc.).

2012 saw a performance at the World Saxophone Congress, with the Quartet & the newly-formed Apollo Saxophone Orchestra (releasing a CD in collaboration with Barbara Thompson), a collaboration with Manchester University Head of Composition Kevin Malone, and a performance at London Jazz Festival. The Apollo Saxophone Quartet have released their new CD of their latest commissions, continuing the rich legacy of high quality, original music that this unique, genre leading ensemble has brought into being.
