Music on the Edge: h2 Saxophone Quartet

January 11, 2014 - 8:00pm

Copresented with The Andy Warhol Museum

“...a virtuosic, tight, beautifully balanced ensemble that also delivers lovely lyrical musical lines.”
—The Saxophone Journal

The h2 Saxophone Quartet’s program will feature recent works from American composers, including William Albright’s Fantasy Etudes, Amy Williams’ Univocity, Bernard Rands’ PRISM: Memo 6b, Matthew Rosenblum’s Mobius Loop, and Daniel Wohl’s Microfluctuations in Plainchant (for sax quartet and 8-bit digital audio).

The award-winning h2 quartet has been wowing audiences since 2002. This all saxophone ensemble has performed throughout the United States, in Europe, and in Asia, in venues from Los Angeles' Walt Disney Hall to the Canker dom in Ljubljana, Slovenia to the Times Center in New York City. The group has released two critically-acclaimed recordings on Blue Griffn Records, and a third album is set for release in 2012. Elsewhere in the media, h2 was featured on the nationally syndicated PBS show Backstage Pass (produced by affliate WKAR), which offers viewers a first-hand look at the inner workings of a top-flight chamber ensemble through live in-studio performances and interviews with the ensemble members.
