ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE
Ellipsos Quartet, a French group formed in Nantes in 2004, is an internationally-known saxophone quartet that incorporates both classical and contemporary music into its repertoire. Having just released their third album Boléro in January 2014, Ellipsos prides itself on enchanting audiences through its lively performances and expanding the scope of the power of music through initiatives such as their annual saxophone camp.
Quatuor Ellipsos celebrates the bicentennial of the Birth of Adolphe Sax (1814-2014) with a French program:
- Introduction et Variations sur une ronde populaire by Gabriel Pierné
- Pavane pour une infante défunte by Maurice Ravel
- Tango Virtuoso by Thierry Escaich
- Petit Quatuor by Jean Francaix
- Bolero by Maurice Ravel (with an electro-acoustic device)
