PROGRAM NOTES

"Music is for sharing" is one of the thoughts more important towards a synthesis of the Quartet. It is important for us because we always want to share the music with the audience and make you enjoy our work.This concert is born of a continuous goal of the group, to increase the repertoire for quartet of saxophones. Therefore, this new quartet of saxophones has been entrusted to the famous composer Jorge Grundman. Born in 1961, is a classical composer Spanish, musicologist, musician and teacher who has helped to recover the music of Robert Kahn and Adalbert Gyrowetz, among others, through the musical foundation non-profit created by him. His works have been interpreted and disseminated mainly in the united States, Canada, London, France, Japan, Brazil and Spain. There are many soloists and ensembles who have performed the music of Grundman as Alisa Weilerstein, Guy Braunstein, Brodsky Quartet, Ara Malikian, etc. - His works have been premiered at music venues such as Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonic, National Auditorium of Music in Madrid, Teatro de la Zarzuela de Madrid, Teatro Nacional de Brasilia, Trinity Cathedral of California, West Valley College Theater, or the Church of The Painful Quito, among others. The music that he writes Grundman does not belong to any avant-garde style. Closest to the tonal music that neorromántica, his music is predominantly emotional because of its extensive use of minor chords and tonal consonants. In his childhood he was part of several pop bands in Spain, and later turned his attention compositional towards music new-age. He has also written music for films and television programs, and in the classic scene makes a fusion of all these elements with your personal touch.
