fisp2019

ASQ return home after a highly enjoyable and exhausting week in the Portugese city of Palmela, performing at FISP 2019.

Under the direction of João Pedro Silva, this biennial festival brought together leading artists from the classical, contemporary and jazz worlds for a celebration of saxophonic brilliance.

The quartet were invited to perform Graham Fitkin's concerto for saxophone quartet and string orchestra 'PLAN B', in the beautiful setting of Santiago Church, within the walls of the Palmela Castle.

The quartet also gave masterclasses and recitals showcasing a selection of the groups commissioned works.

The finale of the week was a jazz event in the town square. The ASQ, alongside leading Portuguese players from the jazz and pop scene and special guest Julian Arg
üelles, put together "Sax Assault Portugal". This featured the music of Andy Scott, originally written for his UK group Group S (formally known as Sax Assault) with contributions from Rob Buckland and Jim Fieldhouse.
