The Borealis Saxophone Quartet is an award-winning group from Manchester, formed in 2009 when the members were at the RNCM. Their music is as lively as the quartet itself, basically chamber music, but not as Mozart or Beethoven may have known it. However, its not all modern music (and nothing wrong with that!), the programme list includes Bach.
Their debut performance was at the Bridgewater Hall, and play regularly at Kings Place and St John’s Smith Square. In 2012, they played at the Proms, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
They are: Alastair Penman; Gillian Blair; Victoria Puttock and Daniel White.
