Saxy South American Sizzle for North Sydney Concert
NEXAS QUARTET – Sunday 24 February
Sunday afternoon Prelude in Tea at the Independent Theatre
Sydney’s ‘saxiest’ ensemble is set to sizzle in North Sydney when Nexas Quartet returns to the Independent Theatre with Tango de Saxos - the next in the Sunday afternoon ‘Prelude in Tea’ concert series on 24 Feb.
And – as always - the theatre’s famous, mouth-watering afternoon tea is included!
The much-awaited return concert from the colourful and hugely popular all-saxophone foursome will feature pieces
by composers such as Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Gerardo Rodriguez and Fernando Lerman.
Since their formation in 2002 Nexas Quartet (Michael Duke, Andrew Smith, Nathan Henshaw and Jay Byrnes)
have premiered countless new Australian works and collaborated with the finest musicians, theatre and dance companies. At the forefront of chamber music, Nexas Quartet is focused on promoting the musical diversity of the saxophone by showcasing its versatility and ability to cross genres.
In 2017 Nexas embarked upon a new collaboration with opera star Peter Colman-Wright, resulting in their Weimar-Era themed ABC Classic release Ballads of the Good Life. (4.5/5 from Limelight Magazine). Other recent highlights included appearing at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music (Townsville), Adelaide Cabaret Festival, performing Warren Barker's Capriccio for Sax Quartet and Wind Band at the Melbourne Recital Centre and Art not Apart (Canberra).
