Sunday, November 20, 2022 2:06 PM
The New York metropolitan area-based Cobalt Quartet was born of a deep passion for exceptional music as well as a common vision for the saxophone quartet as a vehicle for the highest levels of artistry. The quartet is particularly interested in presenting modern compositions by living composers alongside the very best of the repertoire and lesser-known contemporary works, whether written originally for saxophone or transcribed. Since its founding in 2017, the ensemble has presented varied and exciting programs with several partners including: the Asian Women Composers Association of NYC, Concrete Timbre, Andrew Koss, the Megalopolis Saxophone Orchestra, the Long Island Composers Alliance, the New York Composers Circle, and the New Jersey Wind Symphony.
The Cobalt Quartet has released their debut album of contemporary saxophone quartet works by Zdenek Lukáš, David Mecionis, Sunny Knable, Anthony Izzo and Mathew Rosenblum. They are very excited to showcase their abilities, musicality and the various styles each work presents. The album is available now and can be bought as a digital copy or a CD here:
