The Milano saxophone began in 2011, four young musicians coming together from different parts of Italy: Sardegna, Lombardia, Veneto and Trentino.
They met each other at the conservatory in Milan where they took their degrees with best marks and honous under the guidance of Mario Marzi, Daniele Comoglio and Marco Bontempo.
They have attended various masterclasses with internationally renowned saxophonists such as Eugene Rousseau, Federico Mondelci, Mario Marzi, Jean Marie Londeix, Claude Delangle, Massimo Mazzoni, Lars Mlekusch, Quatour Habanera and others.
As soloists, they have won various international and national competitions - and as a quartet they won the first prize at the XVII Concorso Nazionale Giovani Musicisti Cittò di Camerino and the first prize at the XVI Concorso Strumentistico Nazionale Città di Giussano.
They were invited to perform at important festivals such as the XVIII International Saxophone satge in Fermo, the Festival Nazionale di Musica “A Tempo”, Vienna Saxfest 2014 and also in important concert halls like the Sala Verdi of Milan, Palazzo Marino and others.
The project called “Mai soli” is an original project of the quartet and consists of collaborations with renowned modern saxophone soloists like Hayrapeth Arakelyan and Lars Mlekusch.
They have played premieres of work by Sandro Fazzolari, Maarten De Splenter e Mario Pagotto.

The quartet is now preparing to record four CDs for the label IDEAMUS. The four CDs are a historical excursus from the origins to the new works for saxophone quartet. In this two-year project, the quartet will perform the repertoire for saxophone quartet travelling through the romantic, neoclassical, second half of the 20th century and contemporary repertoire. Morover, after the first successful masterclass at the Conservatory of Milan, an important masterclass project with conferences and saxophone lessons will take place soon at the G.P. da Palestrina Conservatory in Cagliari and for other musical institutions.
