Quintessence Saxophone Quintet

Introduced at the anniversary concerts, the programme takes a journey through time, initially retro-thrusting back in time to Johann Sebastian Bach, confronting Bach's music with our contemporary musical rhythms and tonality. Then it's back on warp speed to the 20th Century touching wonderful musical compositions of Greats such as Dave Brubeck (Take Five), Klaus Doldinger (Das Boot). Quintessence Saxophone Quintet blows the dust way, revealing new perspectives and unheard structural qualities.
