The Jean-Michel Goury & Friends saxophone ensemble is an international ensemble of former students of the French saxophonist Jean-
Michel Goury. For over twenty years, Mr. Goury has welcomed students from around the world to the Boulogne-Billancourt Regional
Conservatory just outside of Paris. Inspired directly by the creator of the modern saxophone ensemble, Jean-Marie Londeix, this ensemble
is comprised of 12 to 13 musicians for each piece, composed of the entire family of saxophones, from sopranino to bass, with the exception
of the contrabass saxophone. This unusual combination is, above all, a musical tool, rich and varied by timbre and sonorous colour, all
while remaining a homogenous instrumental ensemble, like the string orchestra. The ensemble allows listeners to discover the entire
saxophone family through different musical aesthetics, represented by an abundant repertoire of original works as well as transcriptions.
Jean-Michel Goury’s former students come from over 15 different countries and have been prize-winners in many international music
competitions. Through their teaching engagements, they continue the modern tradition of French saxophone in France and abroad.
