Cobalt Quartet is a saxophone quartet based in the New York metropolitan area. The quartet is particularly interested in presenting modern works 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 the summer of 2017, the ensemble has presented highly varied and exciting programs with several partners including: AWCANYC, Concrete Timbre, Andrew Koss, MSO, LICA, and NYCC. Cobalt will be releasing its debut album, "Cobalt Blue", in the summer of 2022.

Thank you,

Anthony Izzo
