Music for Saxophone Quartet (minus Alto Saxophone)
After years of neglect, the saxophone quartet is rapidly regaining favor as an ensemble capable of the highest standards of musical expression. This is why many excellent composers, especially those of French origin, have written some of their best music for saxophone quartet, so that today there exists a large repertory for this ensemble, many of the best of which are included on this MMO album. Includes compositions by Pierne, Boccherini, Cailliet, Clerisse, and Hermann. Magnifique!
