Biography

Barry Cockroft

Composer and saxophonist, Barry’s music has received thousands of performances throughout the world and is played regularly in more than 40 countries.

Quatuor Ellipsos

Constitué à Nantes en 2004, 1er prix du Conservatoire de Paris, lauréat de trois concours internationaux, le Quatuor Ellipsos réalise lui-même ses propres adaptions ou arrangements classiques comme pop. Parrainé par Régis Laspalès et Philippe Chevallier, Ellipsos a enregistré trois albums qui se sont exportés dans plus de 40 pays. A la tête de leur académie d’été annuelle à l’Abbaye Royale de Celles-sur-Belle qui vient en soutien à l’UNICEF depuis 7ans, Ellipsos s’engage sur la scène internationale en proposant des récitals toujours plus novateurs tout en faisant découvrir le quatuor de saxophones sous toutes ses formes.
Aujourd’hui reconnu comme l’ambassadeur du quatuor de saxophones français dans le monde, le Quatuor Ellipsos a été le premier quatuor de saxophones invité sur le plateau de « Vivement Dimanche » de Michel Drucker diffusé sur France 2 et TV5 Monde, où ils ont interprété « Asturias » devant plus de 9 millions de téléspectateurs.

Sylvain Beuf

Né le 06 avril 1964 à Paris, Sylvain Beuf est devenu l’un des plus incontournables saxophonistes français – Victoire de la Musique, Djangos d’Or, prix Django Reinhardt, Talent Midem…

Vingt ans de carrière écumés avec le who’s who du jazz français, entre autres : Martial Solal, René Urtreger, Hervé Sellin, Daniel Humair, Henri Texier, Richard Galliano, Michel Perez, André Cecarrelli, Aldo Romano, Andy Emler, Gordon Beck, Alain Jean-Marie, Bojan Z, Billy Hart, Jean Michel Pilc, Emmanuel Bex, Eric Lelann, Alex Tassel, Jean-Pierre Como , Ludovic de Preissac…

Il s’est forgé l’image d’un tranquille et modeste surdoué : compositeur prolixe, soliste inspiré, leader à la parfaite maîtrise et aux choix certains. Celui qui déjà au début des années 90, était placé au niveau d’un Joshua Redman ou d’un Brandford Marsalis, a patiemment construit un chemin sans faute mais non sans surprise, préférant les projets créatifs à tout confortable ressassement.

Relentless drive, inner fire, total command, awesome technique, elastic lyricism, rich resonance, world-class, a musical visionary, are among the rave reviews credited to his sound.
