Notes & Reviews:

Since its creation in 2008, the Sirius Saxophone Quartet have concentrated on contemporary, mainly Dutch works for four saxophones. In order to bridge the distance between listeners and the rather difficult music on their programs, the members of the SSQ often tell the audience about the background of what they are about to hear, sometimes through an anecdote concerning the circumstances in which a particular piece was conceived. They truly believe that, thanks to the players' sustained enthusiasm and commitment to their chosen repertoire, contemporary music may be better accepted and understood by usually reluctant audiences.
