The saxophone is a relatively new instrument, invented in about 1840. Adolphe Sax, the Belgian inventor, conceived it actually as a family of instruments, from highest to lowest, much like a choir of voices. And like the human voice, it has the flexibility to create a wide range of sounds, from brassy trumpets to warm winds and strings. And, a quartet of saxophones – soprano, alto, tenor, baritone – can even sound like an organ. The Washington Saxophone Quartet takes full advantage of all that by performing music in virtually all periods of music, from the renaissance to the contemporary … J. S. Bach to Leonard Bernstein...from Archangelo Corelli to Duke Ellington and everything in between. The possibilities for repertoire are almost limitless!
