Since its formation in Amsterdam in 2009 the Melisma Saxophone Quartet has distinguished itself as a very talented group performing chamber music on a remarkable high level. The quartet is performing throughout Europe and around the world. Apart from playing concerts the quartet has achieved brilliant results in major international chamber music competitions. In May 2011 the quartet was invited to participate in the prestigious 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan as the first Dutch ensemble ever.

Melisma Saxophone Quartet’s repertoire encompasses many different styles and genres. The traditional repertoire for saxophone quartet is fundamental to the group, but the quartet is also curious to find new repertoire and they often do their own arrangements. They enjoy collaborating with other musicians, exploring different musical styles and new ways of performing. Four nationalities (Swiss, Danish, Spanish and Dutch) come together in the quartet and create their own musical language. That is one of the things that make this group unique and each concert is an exciting chamber music experience!

Melisma Saxophone Quartet has performed in major concert halls in the Netherlands and abroad, for instance in The Manuel de Falla Hall (Madrid, Spain), Izumi hall (Osaka, Japan), Orgelpark (Amsterdam), and at major festivals e.g. The 1st Bach Festival in Dordrecht 2010 (NL), The Davos Festival 2012 in Switzerland and the World Saxophone Congress 2012 in St. Andrews. The quartet has also played live on the Dutch National Radio 4 from the Spiegelzaal in Concertgebouw (Amsterdam).
