ITALIAN SAXOPHONE QUARTET returns to Sonoma

The next concert in the Sonoma Classical Music Society’s 2015 season will be Sunday, April 26, at 3:00 p.m. at Vintage House, Sonoma, when the Italian Saxophone Quartet returns to Sonoma with its eclectic mix of classical, crossover, jazz, and film music, accompanied by their super hi-jinks!

The Italian Saxophone Quartet was founded in 1982 by four close friends determined to join together to perform ensemble music for saxophone at the very highest artistic level. Early in their career, the quartet won a number of important chamber music competitions including the unanimous First Prize at the prestigious “Premio Ancona” (under the direction of Goffredo Petrassi), and in addition, were awarded a special prize for their performance of contemporary music. 

The ISQ has since played to wide acclaim in more than 1000 concerts in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Japan, USA, Sweden, Lebanon, Bermuda and Russia.  The quartet's concerts have been recorded and broadcast by the Italian RAI-Radio 1 and RAI-Radio 3 as well as by Swedish, German, Japanese and American national radio stations.
