Notes & Reviews:

Formed in 2023, the award winning Lunar Saxophone Quartet has developed a reputation for their commitment to composer/performer collaborations, leading to dozens of commissions from a variety of different composers. Performances have spanned a wide range of occasions, from Bryn Terfel's Faenol Festival and the Welsh BBC Proms, to live broadcasts on BBC TV and Radio.

Their second disc features a programme of newly commissioned works by some of Wales? youngest and most gifted composers together with those of more established figures.

"Given the instrument's historical context, the Lunar Saxophone Quartet operate where classical shades into jazz...James Williamson's In Memoriam is achingly contemplative, while the title of Lucy Pankhurst's Diaphanousphere suggests the delicate webs of sound created by the quartet." -The Independent***



Reviews

Saxophone Quartet
Yes, first you must love the saxophone. These pieces are fascinating short (mostly) modern works. Definitely worth the listening time!
