Chamber Music (Saxophone Quartets) - TANENBAUM, E. / SAMPSON, D. / MORRILL, D. / SAUTER, E. (Breathing Lessons) (New Hudson Saxophone Quartet)

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 Tanenbaum’s Sax Quartet as well as the multi-movement and coloristic expression of David Sampson’s Breathing Lessons. Dexter Morrill pays homage to two great jazz saxophonists as well as to classical models, whilst Eddie Sauter’s 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 premièred by the group, these are all first recordings.
