Music at Metropolitan - Area 9 Goes Modern! - A Spring Saxophone Concert

Metropolitan Playhouse

220 East 4th Street
between Avenues A and B
New York, NY 10009

THE AREA 9 QUARTET is a Boston-based classical saxophone quartet, specializing in original and transcribed repertoire spanning the entirety of the Western musical canon. Its members, Sean, Seychelle, John and Kangyi, came together through their common association with the legendary teacher and performer Ken Radnofsky of the New England Conservatory and Boston University. The group has performed works by Bach, Glazunov, Creston, Desenclos, Glass, Ellington, and Peck, and was honored to premier Jun Feng's "Somehow, Tango?", dedicated by the composer to The Area 9 Quartet, at the Longy School of Music of Bard College. The Area 9 Quartet is thrilled to be making its fifth appearance at Metropolitan Playhouse  with a new modern lineup.

PROGRAM (subject to change) :

 - "Saxophone Quartet" by Richard Rodney Bennett
 - "Diffusion for Saxophone Quartet, in 4 Movements" by Gordon Goodwin
 - "Sonata for Saxophone Quartet" by Yusef Lateef
