CASCATELLE SAXOPHONE QUARTET

The Cascatelle Saxophone Quartet is a promising young ensemble founded in February 2017 at the Zurich University of the Arts, performing both classical and contemporary music.

The four musicians from Latvia (Paulina Pitenko), Poland (Faustyna Szudra), Switzerland (Vincent Magnin) and Thailand (Pisol Manatchinapisit), mentored by Prof. Lars Mlekusch, made their debut as a quartet at the opening of the exhibition at Museum of Design in Zurich.

In May 2017 the ensemble had an opportunity to work with a contemporary Columbian composer Germán Toro-Pérez and perform his great piece ‘Musique de Saxophone’ at ‘Atelier zeitgenössische Musik’  at ZHdK.

In the near future the Cascatelle Saxophone Quartet is planning to participate in chamber music competitions, to create and organize different artistic projects and to cooperate with composers to enlarge the saxophone repertoire.
