Signum Saxophone Quartet & Nika Gorič (soprano): ‘Kaleidoscope’

classical
Tue17.03.20

Very little music has been written specifically for the saxophone quartet. But many compositions gain extra brilliance when arranged for these instruments. The Signum Quartet has made this added value its life’s work. Together with the singer Nika Gorič, they play outstanding transcriptions of music from the early 20th century.
