The Washington Saxophone Quartet evokes the refined sounds of a string quartet, the rich harmonies of an organ prelude, and the excitement of a jazz sax section. The ensemble taps into a rich repertoire, from early music to newly commissioned works, and draws on a wealth of experience to reach listeners of every age and background. “Looking Bach” has special meaning for the Washington Saxophone Quartet. Since their founding in 1976, they have performed music from all time periods. The music on this recording goes back more than 600 years and four centuries before the invention of the saxophone.
