Quintessence Sax Quintet

imageMeet the Quintessence Saxophone Quintet; I so luv these guys. Who else can make classical music sound appealing to the current generation. I often turn to these guys instead of grabbing another cup o’ joe to keep me alert and wide awake at work! When will they do a United States tour!

The Quintessence Saxophone Quintet ranks among the most creative contemporary saxophone ensembles worldwide. The five have become very adept in modern adaptation of classical and baroque masterpieces of composer such as: Bach, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mozart or Handel. The sheer beauty of the Classics intermingle with the vibrancy of Jazz to produce a single entity without stylistic restrictions.

An important aim of QSQ is to touch the audience’s heart rather than just appeal to the intellect. Each concert is a celebration in which the audience can laugh and rejoice. The witty presentation, more or less comical choreographic contributions and intelligently humorous arrangements make the ingredients for a new approach to the enjoyment of classical music. Quintessence is entirely saxophone and over the top entertainment.
