Biography

“Those four musicians embody what we have always stood for – to go beyond limits.
The Morphing quartet reclaim a demanding classical repertoire with intelligence and finesse. This allows them to think outside the box and bring a necessary breath of fresh air in today’s musical world. They do so with talent and vitality as proven by their interpretation of Ravel’s quartet on which we were lucky enough to work together. This was a true revelation and they can without a doubt serve as a role model for younger generations.
Forming a quartet with artistry and a true identity needs constant working on togetherness, a balance of tones, dynamism and articulation. All of those they achieve with excellence.”
Quatuor Ebène

In 2013, the Morphing Quartet won first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition of Illzach. They were awarded by the Banque Populaire fondation, as well as the Cziffra fondation.

The performers’ complicity on a musical level serves an eclectic and ambitious program: Mendelssohn and Borodine, alongside Beffa and Ravel or even Piazzola and Mike Mower. From Baroque to Romanticism, Modern Music to Tango, viewers leave the concert with the joy of discovering the new sand original sounds of Mister Sax.

After more than a hundred concerts all over the world, no doubt that they belong to the new generation of brillant classical formations of our time. Directly after their studies in Paris Conservatory, they began an international promising career.

This level of playing inspired by the best string quartets reveals unexpected musical qualities of the saxophone.

Morphing consists in putting two photos together to create a new, unique one. The four saxophonists introduce « Morphing sonore” of their respective musicality.
