A fantastic ensemble that’s ‘still on fire’, innovative, and hell-bent on high-quality music making.” (Enjott Schneider)
These four young musicians from Munich, possessed of a charismatic and authentic stage presence, set audiences aflame with their spark-throwing enthusiasm and burning passion for this rare form of chamber music.
In their highly professional, exact interpretations, they explore the relationship between individual expressivity and the interwoven quality that makes chamber music what it is. And in doing so, they captivate listeners with their joy of playing and expressive depth. This eagerness to communicate, along with their acute perception of one another, makes possible virtually “una voce” articulation. The resulting effect is far-reaching both sonically and musically, with the saxophone’s entire spectrum of colour coming brilliantly to light.
The ensemble was founded in 2009 at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, and studied chamber music under the Artemis Quartet at the Berlin University of the Arts, with additional instruction from Koryun Asatryan and Prof. Friedemann Berger in Munich. The quartet has been a member of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA, Prof. Hatto Beyerle, Prof. Johannes Meissl e.a.) since 2014.
In addition, they are supported by a scholarship of Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now and the PE-Förderungen for Students of Music.
They take the world’s stages by storm: After their international debut in the Great Hall of Tchaikovsky Conservatory Moscow and the concert in Wigmore Hall, the invitation to play in Berlin Philharmonie in 2017 marked a new milestone in their career.
