Red Clay Saxophone Quartet
Sunday, January 25, 2015 - 3:00pm
Program includes works by Duke graduate composition alumni Paul Leary and Carl Schimmel, as well as Stacy Garrop, John Anthony Lennon, and Anna Meadors.The Red Clay Saxophone Quartet was formed in 2003 when the fates conspired to bring four internationally recognized saxophonists (Susan Fancher, Robert Faub, Steven Stusek and Mark Engebretson) together in Greensboro, North Carolina. The RCSQ takes its name from the area's luscious red soil. The Quartet presents a varied repertoire from classical to jazz to new music to tango, featuring music by composers such as Ben Johnston, György Ligeti, Chick Corea, Perry Goldstein, Francis Poulenc, Alejandro Rutty, Ben Boone, Steve Reich, Mark Engebretson, Martin Bresnick, Burton Beerman and Gavin Bryars.
