COPENHAGEN SAXOPHONE QUARTET
Copenhagen Saxophone Quartet is one of Denmark's most recognized ensembles in the field of classical chamber music. Since the debut in 1998, the quartet has toured Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Scandinavia, Austria, Croatia, the USA, Iceland, UK, Italy, and Poland, and has taken part in an official state visit to Slovenia with the Danish royal couple.
Besides playing music from the wide repertoire written for saxophone quartet which is still evolving, CSQ features music of the baroque by A. & D. Scarlatti, Johann Sebastian Bach and Arcangelo Corelli.
But also contemporary music by composers such as Iannis Xenakis, Franco Donatoni and Per Nørgård has the special interest of the ensemble.
CSQ actively works to commission and play new music from living composers. This effort has resulted in numerous pieces dedicated especially to the quartet.
Furthermore, CSQ also performs with vocalists, pianists, percussionists and a string quartet.
In 2003, CSQ released their third CD which contains music written by Domenico Scarlatti. This recording received impressive reviews internationally and won the prestigious award "P2-Prisen" from the Danish National Radio for best Chamber music recording of the year.
Over the years, CSQ has worked with artists such as: Michala Petri, Viggo Mangor, Amalie Malling, Matthias Hedegaard, rock artist Dicte, writer Jens Christian Grøndahl and the Cikada String Quartet.

Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti (26 October 1685 -- 23 July 1757) was an Italian composer who spent much of his life in the service of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families. He is classified as a Baroque composer chronologically, although his music was influential in the development of the Classical style. Like his renowned father Alessandro Scarlatti he composed in a variety of musical forms, although today he is known mainly for his 555 keyboard sonatas.
