New Saxophone Quartet Recording

I would like to announce the release of "Magheia" by the Premiere Saxophone Quartet. The impetus to record this album came about as a result of our performance of Lucie Robert-Diessel's "Magheia." This "magical" masterpiece for saxophone quartet and piano has been recorded once before not long after the premiere of the piece in 1976 with the composer at the piano. We were so inspired by the work, that we wanted to record it! As a result of correspondence with the composer, we were fortunate to have her write a new work for this combination of instruments, Issôs? Finally, the opening work on the recording is by San Francisco Bay Area composer, Jon Scoville. His lively, minimalist style work, "Sr. Miro's Saxophone" is a regular crowd pleaser at our concerts. To hear samples of this new recording, please visit our [URL="http://psquartet.com/"]website[/URL] at [URL="http://psquartet.com/"]psquartet.com[/URL]. All the best, Dale Wolford Premiere Saxophone Quartet [IMG]http://dalewolford.com/psq_email/files/coverart3.jpg[/IMG]
