Notes & Reviews:

The critically acclaimed and award winning h2 quartet presents a CD of new works for saxophone quartet that explores classical, jazz, electronica, acoustic, avant-garde and minimalism. Hailed as "an ensemble to watch for years to come" and a group of "artistic commitment" (American Record Guide), the h2 quartet does not disappoint with this newest release. Because of their continued dedication to furthering the repertory for saxophone, many of the works here have been commissioned by h2 quartet and many are premiere recordings. The h2 quartet has been featured on NPR and PBS programs, including the nationally syndicated Backstage Pass and has won numerous awards since their inception.
