Saxophone Sounds

Signum Saxophone Quartet

Welcome back, Signum Saxophone Quartet! This ensemble’s debut in Augustusburg Palace last year was so brilliant, and the demand for tickets so much greater than space allowed, that we wanted to give you the chance once more to experience these four saxophonists live. On this year’s programme we have the B minor quartet from Haydn’s legendary Op. 33 and Mussorgsky’s immortal masterpiece about the “Pictures at an Exhibition,” in addition to classics from the jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie and Chick Corea as well as the “king of tango” Astor Piazzolla, each in exquisite arrangements. Saxophone sounds at their finest.

Joseph Haydn (1732–1809)
String Quartet in B minor op. 33 Nr. 1 Hob. III:37, arranged for saxophone quartet
