Zagreb Saxophone Quartet plans BYU concert Nov. 1

Brigham Young University will host Croatia’s world-renowned saxophone ensemble, the Zagreb Saxophone Quartet, presenting music ranging from Baroque to 20th century, Saturday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $16, or $11 with a BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit byuarts.com.

Graduates of the Zagreb Academy of Music in Croatia, members of the quartet have performed together since 1989. The Quartet features Dragan Sremec on the soprano saxophone, Goran Merčep on the alto saxophone, Saša Nestorović on the tenor saxophone and Matjaž Drevenšek on the baritone saxophone.

The Zagreb Saxophone Quartet has reached a growing audience in Eastern Europe, and has played in venues throughout Europe as well as Canada and the United States, including Carnegie Hall in New York.

The quartet's repertoire includes pieces originally written for saxophone quartets, as well as arrangements of pieces by various composers of different periods, ranging from the Baroque, including Bach and Purcell, to the 20th century, including Piazzola, Glass and Gershwin. In addition, the ensemble's performances have inspired Croatian composers, including Bjelinski, Detoni and Glassl, to dedicate their pieces to the quartet.
