Event Details

The Italian Saxophone Quartet was founded in 1982 by four saxophone soloists, and close friends determined to join to perform chamber music for saxophone at the very highest artistic level. The quartet has won several important chamber music competitions including the unanimous First Prize, plus a special prize, at the prestigious “Premio Ancona” in Italy. Among their important projects, in 1999 the quartet performed Berio's work “Outis” with the Symphony Orchestra of Milan’s Teatro Alla Scala.  They recently appeared as soloists with the Malipiero Symphony Orchestra and collaborated with the Fonè String Quartet on the creation of a new arrangement of the Art of the Fugue by J.S. Bach for string and saxophone quartets, which was premiered at the XXII International Chamber Music Festival in Asolo. Since 2002 the ISQ's annual tours of the United States have brought them to New York City, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and other venues in California, Florida, Georgia, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Idaho, Alaska, and now Newbery, South Carolina!
