WSaxQ is the most widely heard saxophone quartet in the United States. Since 1997, recorded arrangements by the Washington Saxophone Quartet have aired daily throughout the United States on NPR’s broadcasts of “All Things Considered.” Concert audiences enjoy their connection to WSaxQ when they discover they’ve been listening to the quartet’s music during afternoon “drive-time.” And it often comes as a surprise that they’ve been hearing four saxophones! The instruments evoke the refined sounds of a string quartet, the rich harmonies of an organ prelude, and the excitement of a jazz sax section.

It is perhaps the most-played violin concerto of all time and one of the more demanding works for the violin virtuoso – Tchaikovsky’s Concerto for Violin – remarkable for its unwavering melodic inspiration and passionate expression of human feeling.  In it, Tchaikovsky speaks to us from the heart, using the voice of the solo violin as his medium.  Also on the program is the light and playful 9th Symphony by Shostakovich.
