Nexas Saxophone Quartet

11 Mar 2020


2020 Sydney Morning Masters


The ‘American in Paris’, from whom this program draws its title, is George Gershwin himself. Inspired by the sounds he heard in France’s capital in 1926, his lively orchestral work An American in Paris lies at the heart of this colourful program for saxophone quartet. 

Nexas are one of Australia’s foremost saxophone ensembles, dedicated to putting the classical saxophone back on musical radars everywhere. These versatile woodwind instruments, invented in France, can sound like anything from brass to percussion and everywhere in between – simply close your eyes and be transported.

Michael Duke soprano saxophone
