Limnos Quartet was born 2005 in France, where the four saxophonists met during their mastery studies of the instrument, in order to publicize the saxophone in its different facets.
They have performed at numerous concert halls and festivals in Spain and abroad, with a program that explores the versatility of this formation. They interpret from a representative repertoire of the traditional school of saxophone to transcriptions of original works for other formations, to a wide range of works by contemporary composers. In the latter field, they have had the opportunity to work directly with the composers Salvador Brotons, Dimitri Tchesnockov and David Salleras. The outcome of this collaboration is their first album “Identitats Sonores” (2015).
Limnos Quartet has been trained as a chamber group by renowned saxophonists as Eric Devallon, Claude Delangle, Juan Jimenez, Christophe Bois and Luis Ignacio Gascón.
In 2011 it obtained the third prize at the III Yamaha International Competition for Saxophone Quartet held in Madrid. It was also finalist for the “I Concurso Internacional de Música de Cámara La Porta Clàssica-Matas i Ramis”.
