The Sirocco Saxophone Quartet’s new CD Catch features Charlotte’s quartet Throw Back, written for the ensemble in 2007
Sirocco Saxophone Quartet performs a wide range of music, from ancient baroque transcriptions to brand new commissions. Following their debut album La Danza – a lively programme of dances featuring several transcriptions – for their second release CATCH the quartet developed a programme of purely modern music. They have chosen five pieces by excellent living composers, two of which were commissioned by the ensemble. The quartet is committed to the promotion of new music for their instrument and these talented composers greatly enrich the saxophone’s somewhat limited repertoire.
