The disc features their collaboration with pianist Timothy End, and includes music by Dmitri Shostakovich, Iain Farrington, Georges Bizet and Pedro Iturralde.
The Ferio Saxophone Quartet will perform a double-bill of concerts at Henley Festival on Sunday 19th September.
In the morning they will give an informal performance at 10:30am, as part of the Festival’s ‘Family Sunday’ line-up — then they will give a formal concert at 6:30pm to an audience in black tie dress-code.
Both performances feature the same programme, including works by Piazzolla, Donizetti, Bach, Bizet and Bernstein, and will take place at the festival’s ‘Jazz Club’ in the magnificent Spiegel Tent.
Tickets are available via the Henley Festival website, via the General Admission and Family Sunday sections.
The two ensembles have built a collaborative project which they look forward to presenting in concert and on disc in the coming seasons.
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.
