Squillante Ensemble Performance

Squillante Ensemble Performance / classical, crossover

Since 2006, the Squillante Ensemble gathers together nine saxophonists who studied at the Paris Conservatoire, whose ambition is to promote their instrument in the current musical scene, by trying to combine the orchestral possibilities of their ensemble and the chamber facet of a group with no conductor.

From baroque transcription to contemporary premieres, the Squillante Ensemble very soon established a reputation thanks to the contagious energy of its musicians on stage, who constantly tend to renew the traditional concert.

In 2009, their 1st CD breaks with the traditionally imposed “classical” canons, by proposing a programme of transcriptions around baroque music and pieces inspired by that period… offering, through this charming musical anachronism, a truly unprecedented re-reading and an interpretation of the masterpieces by Bach, Corelli, Grieg and Ravel.

Their growing desire for innovation, associated with a more and more avid interest of composers for the saxophone, very regularly takes the Squillante Ensemble to the ground of premieres and current music.

The idea of “musical split” finds all its meaning in 2011 with their second record project “Spaccata”, with the Jazz trombonist Daniel Casimir.

The Squillante Ensemble has already been invited to perform in numerous festivals: Flâneries Musicales of Reims (closing concert before 17 000 people), Semaines Musicales of Quimper, “C pas classique” Festival of Nice, Les concerts de l’Improbable by Jean-François Zygel at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, Festival des jeunes interprètes in Radio France, the “Kiosque à musique” at the Phénix of Valenciennes, the “Boite à musique” by Jean-François Zygel on France Télévision but also the “Ibérico” Festival of Badajoz in Spain, the Festival of Samobor in Croatia or even the “Mi-fugue, Mi-raisin” festival in Belgium, among many others…

Every summer since 2008, the “Curso Internacional de saxofón de la Villa de Montefrío” takes place in Spain (Granada), where the Squillante Ensemble shares and spreads its passion for chamber music with saxophone students from all over the world.
