About

The saxophone quartet is a versatile and exciting medium and the New Hudson Saxophone Quartet is one of the world leaders in the field. The music ranges widely and embraces the jazz-derived rhythmic drive of Elias Tanenbaumís Sax Quartet as well as the multi-movement and coloristic expression of David Sampsonís Breathing Lessons.

Dexter Morrill pays homage to two great jazz saxophonists as well as to classical models, whilst Eddie Sauterís almost unknown work for tuba and saxophone quartet is full of imaginative invention. Eric Ewazen provides a brilliant and energetic conclusion.

Whether written for or premiŤred by the group, these are all first recordings.
