Invented in Paris in 1846 by the Belgian-born Adolphe Sax, the saxophone was readily embraced by French composers who championed the new instrument through numerous ensemble and solo compositions. This tradition is celebrated in a program, performed by the young and exciting Kenari Quartet, that explores the saxophone in all of its colors and sonorities, from Pierre Max Dubois's light-hearted and jazz-inspired music to the lyrical and expressive world of Alfred Desenclos, and from Jean Francaix's witty "bantering" to the excitement and energy which closes Florent Schmitt's Quatour, Op. 102.
