Four of Malta’s leading saxophonists join forces to perform saxophone quartet works with influences from around the world. Zemp’s Air Scandinave opens the programme with clear inspiration of Scandinavian music. One of the core works in the saxophone quartet repertoire will also be featured, which is Glazunov’s saxophone quartet, a late work in the composer’s oeuvre with influences from different composers in the Romantic era. Iturralde’s influences in jazz and traditional Greek dances will feature in his Suite Hellenique and Whitlock’s Celtic Suite will showcase musical influences from Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
