Introduction - iSax is a saxophone quartet. That's 4 people playing saxophones of various shapes and sizes, namely soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. We play a variety of music in a whole range of styles. Bach to Beatles, Gabrielli to Gershwin, Shearing to Shostakovich. We especially like baroque and renaissance music which goes well on saxophones. Carols and Christmas music are popular too and pop songs and standards also feature.

Everything you wanted to know about sax...

Our presentation entitled "everything you wanted to know about sax.... but were afraid to ask" is a musical journey from ancient times to modern, highlighting the versatility of the saxophone and featuring compositions by A. Nonymous, William Byrd, Michael Praetorius, William Boyce, WA Mozart, Lennon and McCartney, and as many others as we can fit in. It should be fun.

iSax are

David James - soprano

Lisa Wood - alto

Robert Foster - tenor

Jackie Gumb - baritone

EndorsementsThe following comments were received by iSax following our appearances in 2018/19. All the performances included our presentation “Everything you wanted to know about sax but were afraid to ask”
 

 

"a huge thank you for such a wonderful concert today." 

"I was amazed by the range of sounds you all got from just four instruments."

"a great programme  with that musical journey from medieval times through to the present day. The links were great too, very funny." 

"Your playing is superb! Such togetherness and sensitivity in phrasing and dynamics."

"The audience were bowled over – we had so many positive comments and happy smiling faces." 

"Thanks again, we’ve all enjoyed it immensely and we hope you’ll come back sometime soon," 

"With humour and warmth, iSax gave us an afternoon of music to remember and we very much hope to see and hear them again soon."

"Thanks again for an afternoon of interesting facts and anecdotes as well as wonderful music." 

"You put together such a varied and enjoyable programme, interspersed with delightful snippets of information, which entertained and educated us."

"You all played with care and sensitivity, the instruments blended beautifully and I couldn’t believe how many different genres of music suit the instrument. Hope to see you all back here again one day."

"What a wonderful morning of music you gave us on Friday. My members were really impressed by the range of music that you performed and the precision and subtlety of the group's playing. I think that it was a wake-up call to those who did not know a saxophone quartet and I am sure that they would like to hear you again in due course. "
 

"..great to hear your lovely music." 

"Very many thanks again to the talented saxophonists in iSax who gave us a splendid evening of kaleidoscopic music demonstrating the virtuosity of both the instrument and the musicians. The numbers for your concert certainly shows that your fame has spread far and wide – and so it should!" 

" Just to let you know how much I enjoyed the concert yesterday and how impressed I was with iSax.  I thought the format worked really well and David's compering made it very entertaining and informative.  The range of music was great and each piece sounded very fresh because of the contrasts. The early music sounded fabulous with this sax combination. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the pieces and you all seemed to be enjoying them too." 

"I have never been drawn to the saxophone before but this concert has really changed that.  I spoke with several friends during the interval and all felt the same, as well as appreciating the quality and precision of playing."
