1 Feb ’19 | UK premiere ‘Artvark & Apollo’ | HOME Manchester
Artvark (NL) & Apollo (UK): two sax quartets collide & merge. Double quartet ‘Artvark and Apollo’ – with the renowned Apollo Saxophone Quartet from Manchester.
After our first encounter in Capetown, we wanted more!
In 2018 the collaboration with Apollo has continued with the composition of 8 brand new pieces by each of the musicians for 8 saxophones and a premiere at Amersfoort Jazz Festival. The classical and jazz roots of both quartets found new ways to connect and cross the ocean. A joint tour in England and the Netherlands starts with this UK premiere and continues in 2019 and 2020.
