Having already won many prizes and awards (The Philharmonia/Martin Musical Ensemble, Royal Over-Seas League’s Ensemble Competition, Tunnell Trust Award) and appointed St John's Smith Square Young Artist of the year for 2016 – 17, the Ferio Saxophone Quartet is Europe's most exciting up-and-coming ensemble of its kind. This, its debut commercial CD, features original works written for saxophone quartet. Composers range from Gabriel Pierné and Jean-Baptiste Singelée to Eugène Bozza and Guillermo Lago (who wrote The Wordsworth Poems specially for the Quartet this year). Through this choice of repertoire, the Ferio Quartet is inviting listeners to experience a number of musical styles and moods, playing works from the time of the saxophone’s invention right up to the present day.

“If anything, these brief comparisons confirm just how gifted the Ferios really are; they also underline the sheer presence and tonal sophistication of this new recording…in short, Flux is the perfect calling card, and it should win the group lots of new friends and followers.”

Financial Times

****

“Playing and music alike sport an irresistible exuberance.”

BBC Music Magazine

“Ferios certainly have skill on their side, and every emotional hue you could want-smoky, honeyed, shrieking or sad.”

“Playing is of the highest level throughout, as is the stunning recorded sound.”
