The Italian Saxophone Quartet was founded in 1982 by four saxophone soloists, close friends determined to join together to perform chamber music for saxophone at the very highest artistic level. Since then, they have played to wide acclaim in more than 500 concerts in Italy (including the most important concert institutions), France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Japan, USA, Sweden, Lebanon, Bermuda and Russia. The quartet’s concerts have been recorded and broadcast by the Italian RAI-Radio 1 and RAI-Radio 3 as well as by Swedish, German, Japanese and American national radios.

The quartet won a number of important chamber music competitions including the unanimous First Prize plus a special prize at the prestigious “Premio Ancona” in Italy.

Featuring the soprano saxophone master Federico Mondelci, the Sax Quartet presented a delightful program of classical, blues, Piazzolla’s tangos, and contemporary music. The quartet’s flawless performance was entertaining for hardcore classical music fans and yet reached the more novice concert goer, which is just what we wanted.

Havingpresented and listened to many American sax quartets it was amazing to hear how much more sublime the ISQ sounds. The uniqueness of their instrumentation and the unquestionable quality of the performance teamed with creative programming is a winning combination.
