Since their formation in 2002, the saxophone group Nexas Quartet has premiered countless new Australian works and collaborated with the finest musicians while focusing on promoting the musical diversity of the saxophone.
Nexas join forces with the exuberant harpist Emily Granger to enchant you with the delights this unusual combination of instruments can deliver. Featuring adaptions of works by Debussy and Ravel the performance showcases the lush tonal palette created between harp and saxophone. The program also includes the Australian premiere of Russel Howard’s work for saxophone quartet and harp, as well as the world premiere of Wijand van Klaveren’s new work for this combination of instruments.
