The Amherst Saxophone Quartet is the Saxophone Quartet in Residence at the University at Buffalo. • This series is made possible, in part. with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts. • M & T Bank is the sole corporate sponsor of this concert set.. "A favorite passed around by Curtis students was a record of the Hollywood Saxophone Quartet. which dazzled us with its brilliant playing and daring harmonic progressions. You would think that four saxophones were too similar in sound to hold the listener's interest for any length of time, but each instrument laid stake to a specific register, and the common quality of sound was cohesive and unifying. In retrospect. I realize this is suspiciously like the rationale for a string quartet." —Arnold Steinhardt, Guarneri String Quartet, from his book Indivisible By Four, reprinted with permission of the author.
