Philip Glass & Michael Nyman


Works for Saxophone Quartet

Electric – or perhaps more fittingly electrifying – are the sounds emanating from the loudspeakers. And all of it is unplugged. The sounds are created by sonic.art – not only one of the finest saxophone quartets but also perhaps the most compelling chamber music formation anywhere. With works by Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, this Genuin CD is already the ensemble’s second, following its 2010 debut production. The four young musicians have won many competition prizes, but actually all you need to do is listen to the enthralling sounds on their latest silver disc to be fully won over by the artistry of these newcomers!

The Globe and Mail
"...excellent ensemble’s opalescent sound, pristine intonation and melodic flexibility."
