Return of the Marici Saxes
Saturday 24th September
Stand by for the miraculous sound of saxophones as the Marici Saxophone Quartet makes a welcome return.
Those of you who came to their last concert in Edington – in 2016! – will remember the sparkle and wonderful musicality they brought to arrangements of ‘serious’ and lighter classical music, as well as the technical brilliance demonstrated throughout and in their own compositions. In the intervening years the quartet, playing combinations of soprano, alto, tenor and bass saxophones have been busy recording, broadcasting and composing, and are delighted to be back on the road playing to live audiences.
The programme will be based around their new and very successful album, Origin; they describe it as “easy on the ear and yet has fresh new sounds and interesting composers to make it a wonderfully intelligent programme.” There are old favourites from Piazzolla, Peter Maxwell Davis and Michael Nyman, arrangements of folk tunes from China, Native America and Scotland – a new composition from Marici’s own Josie Simmons, and an arrangement of traditional music by Edvard Grieg.
This is inclusive music to raise the spirits and we look forward to seeing all our old friends back again. Please book early to secure your seats.
