DONALD SINTA QUARTET, saxophone quartet
Dan Graser, soprano sax; Zach Stern, alto sax; Joe Girard, tenor sax; Danny Hawthorne-Foss, baritone sax

No Strings Attached!

Progamme:
David Kechley: Rush; Schubert: Quartettsatz in C minor, D.703; Chris Evan Hass: Volcanic Ash;
Gabriel Pierné: Introduction et variations sur une ronde populaire; Samuel Barber: Adagio; Thierry Escaich: Tango Virtuoso; Shostakovich: Quartet No. 8, Op. 110; Marc Mellits: Ex Machina; Roger Zare: Z(4430)

And now for something completely different - chamber music with sax. Imagine an original, but deeply authentic sound - string quartets by Schubert, Shostakovich and Barber arranged for saxophone quartet. The Donald Sinta Quartet, First Prize Winner of the 2013 Concert Artists Guild Competition, has also won the top prize at several chamber music competitions. They are “… a tight-knit ensemble exploding with power” (Boston Musical Intelligencer) and “astonishing virtuosity” (Palm Beach Daily News). They perform entirely from memory, which strengthens an already palpable connection with their audiences. You will be surprised and delighted!
