The Ferio Saxophone Quartet enjoyed three days of sessions in May, recording their newest CD, this time in collaboration with pianist Timothy End.
The disc features new arrangements of works by Georges Bizet, Dmitri Shostakovich and Iain Farrington, as well as original music for saxophone quartet and piano by Pedro Iturralde.
The disc is due for release in November on the Chandos record label, with a launch concert at St Matthew’s Church, Westminster. More details will follow over the next few months.
Since coming together to produce a remotely-recorded video during the first Coronavirus lockdown in summer 2020, the two ensembles have built a collaborative project which they look forward to presenting in concert and on disc in the coming seasons.
Their concert at the Winchfield Festival will take place on Friday 13th August at 7:30pm, to a live audience in the Festival Marquee. Tickets go on sale to the public from 8th May.
The Ferio Saxophone Quartet’s latest project is a collaboration with vocal ensemble the Corvus Consort (formerly the New Oxford Consort), with a video coming soon, featuring music by J. S. Bach.
The video, recorded and produced during the lockdown, will be premiered as part of The Sixteen‘s Sounds Sublime Festival, which this year takes place online.
Lovely to hear the Ferio Saxophone Quartet’s recording of Corelli’s Concerto Grosso op. 6, no. 8 (3rd movement) played on Sarah Walker’s BBC Radio 3 Sunday Morning programme.
