PSQ Concerts in October

The PSQ has been preparing for two great concerts this month. Details below.

The Premiere Saxophone Quartet will be premiering a new work for saxophone quartet and chamber orchestra by four-time Emmy winning composer Laura Karpman (www.laurakarpman.com) with the San Jose Chamber Orchestra, directed by Barbara Day Turner on Sunday, October 21, 2007 at 7pm. This major new work features each of the members of the quartet in a movement influenced by an improvisation of a famous saxophonist--John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan. The piece promises to be a major addition to the saxophone repertoire.

Details for this concert can be found at: http://sjco.org/

The Premiere Saxophone Quartet will also being performing another new work for saxophone quartet and piano by Lucie Robert-Diessel at our San Jose State Concert on October 28th. You may be aware we "premiered" the beginning of this piece at our spring concert--now come hear the complete piece in this "premiere" of the ending! We'll be joined by Victoria DiMaggio Lington on the piano. In addition we'll be performing a recent work by Joseph Trapanese, "New York Rising," a new arrangement of Vaughn-Williams' "Six English Folksongs" by our own Aaron Lington, as well as Pierne's "Introduction et Variations sur une Ronde Populaire."
