Biography

Papandopulo Quartet consists of Croatian saxophone players, all of them graduates of the Music Academy in Zagreb in class of professor Dragan Sremec. They persued their education at Conservatoires in Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna as well as on the master lasses held by world renowned saxophone players.
The quartet performed on many festivals such as Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Music Biennale Zagreb, Split Summer Festival, New Music Festival in Split and Echoraum in Vienna. Special attention has been given to a promotion of new music written by young Croatian and foreign composers. Members of the quartet teach at Music Academies in Zagreb, Sarajevo (Bosnia) and Novi Sad (Serbia), and at music schools in Croatia. They recorded a CD which has won a national discography prize “Porin”.

More informations

The works proposed here for the performance at the World Saxophone Congress make part of the quartet repertoire for two years and are included in numerous concert performances. The audience and critics are specially sensible to these pieces so we decided to present them at this important event. Mirela Ivičević through her composition Goldspell pictures a scene of trash-horror movies. With normal effects and very reduced text she treats the saxophone quartet medium in a very personal manner. Ferek- Petrić uses ethnic music of Balkans to evoke a home-sick feeling of all the immigrants found in Vienna. Papandopulo’s Croquis are here to show a 20th century croatian classic. We were lucky enough to have got some important works for saxophone by Boris Papandopulo that he wrote at the end of his life.
