Formed by 4 young saxophonists from 4 different countries (CH, DK, ESP, and NL), Melisma is an ambitious, international quartet that performs throughout Europe, e.g. in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, Spain, and Switzerland. Melisma has been invited to play at several festivals, such as the Bachfestival Dordrecht (NL), Davos Festival (CH) or Grieg Festival Bergen (N), and its performances have been recorded live and broadcasted by the Swiss radio SRF2 and the Dutch Radio4. In 2011, Melisma quartet has been awarded with Honourable Mentions at the 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan.

“The Melisma Saxophone Quartet offers everything a chamber ensemble of the 21st century needs: in addition to both their outstanding technical and tonal qualities, the four young charismatic saxophonists express an unrestrained enthusiasm, sensitivity in their interaction and an effective and sensual stage performance.”
Graziella Contratto, Director of the Davos Festival 2007 - 2013

“The outstanding Melisma Quartet plays fresh, dynamic and deep in their interpretations. The great success of this congenial ensemble is the logical result of good soloists who over the last years have fused together to a beauty amalgamation of musical intension.”
