Signum Saxophone Quartet

The Alchemy of Folk A.
Dvořák, ‘Americano’ string quartet in F major. op. 96 (arr. Signum)
G. Ligeti, Sei bagatelle (arr. Signum)
A. Vivaldi, Concerto “La Tempesta di Mare” op. 10 RV 433 (arr. Signum)

The Signum Saxophone Quartet has always aimed to go beyond the limits of classical music, but without any artistic or musical compromise. This certainly explains what led the authoritative daily paper Süddeutsche Zeitung to insist that the Signum stands on the same level as today’s most prestigious string quartets; its friendly definition for them was “The fabulous four”. The quality and artistic integrity of this outstanding quartet, founded in Cologne in 2006, is amply borne out by their debut album with Deutsche Grammophon (Echoes, 2021) and their vibrant international career.
“The Alchemy of Folk” is the latest invention from the Signum musical laboratory: the special sound of their instruments pays tribute to Vivaldi, Mozart, Bartok – to name a few. With their constant search for perfection and the impeccable melding of their sound, Signum creates an elisir of music (folk) never heard elsewhere, and highly personal.
