Sax Ecosse is a young, vibrant Scottish saxophone quartet which has enjoyed considerable success as a chamber ensemble throughout the the UK and Europe. The players are passionate advocates for original repertoire for saxophone quartet and have successfully introduced this exciting and engaging music to numerous audiences throughout music clubs and festivals. They are grateful for the generous support received from Musicians’ Benevolent Fund, The Cross Trust, Scottish International Educational Trust, and The Hope Scott Trust, allowing them to study as a quartet with the pioneering Rascher Saxophone Quartet and the virtuoso saxophonist, Dr Frederick Hemke.
