  Sonic Art Saxophone Quartet Ensemble


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 album 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!
 
"...excellent ensemble’s opalescent sound, pristine intonation and melodic flexibility."   ***
 
Elissa Poole - The Globe and Mail.com - 20 January 2012
 

"...The sonic.art quartet tackles music that’s been recorded before, but in each case they knock out their competition with remarkable tonal control, articulation, subtlety of phrasing, and the highest imaginale musicianship..."

Rob Haskins - American Record Guide - July/August 2012
