Event description

Description

One of the most popular instruments of the 20th century, the saxophone, soars, sings and swings in this program of American ‘greats’. Award winning saxophonist Nicholas Russoniello performs with unrivalled virtuosity on an original 1920’s C-melody saxophone alongside period string ensemble Golden Age Quartet. This unique concert experience allows listeners to experience the music of the early twentieth century on original instruments and in a manner inspired by the highly expressive playing styles of Rudy Wiedoeft, Al Gallodoro, Fritz Kreisler, Albert Sammons and the London String Quartet.

Nick Russoniello has been the recipient of a number of major awards including the ABC Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year and the Fine Music Kruger Scholarship. Nick has appeared as a soloist with the Adelaide, Queensland, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras and as a guest performer with the Acacia Quartet, Omega Ensemble, Australian Opera Ballet Orchestra and the Australian World Orchestra. Nick's compositions have been performed around the globe and his performances can be regularly heard on ABC Classic FM and Fine Music 102.5. Nick is a Yamaha Australia artist.

The Golden Age Quartet is a new and innovative chamber ensemble, delivering research-led performances that explore the aesthetic of a bygone era. Formed in 2016 to explore the sound world of the early twentieth century, this quartet plays on a mixture of modern and period (gut and silk) strings and in a style reminiscent of early twentieth century ensembles: the Marjorie Hayward and London String Quartets. The players share a passion for creative and expressive performance and have individually performed in some of the world’s elite ensembles including the Mannheimer Phiharmoniker, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Academy of St Martins in The Field, The Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
