Four saxophones, four experienced, talented and well-known musicians on the stage of Technopolis 20, for a Christmas concert. The Cyprus Saxophone Quartet that was established in 2016 and has since secured itself in the musical life of the community as the only saxophone quartet in Cyprus, is comprised of Christos Zenios (soprano saxophone), Zaki Vladovich (alto saxophone), Christos Papadopoulos (tenor saxophone) and Yiannis Miralis (baritone saxophone). Do not miss the opportunity to listen to them in a festive programme, with works arranged for five saxophones, along with world premieres. With its purity of sound, extensive dynamic range and homogenous blending, the quartet aspires to promote classical saxophone and chamber music in Cyprus. Its repertoire ranges from classical arrangements, original and standard compositions, as well as arrangements of pop and jazz songs. The Cyprus Saxophone Quartet has appeared in the Cyprus Wine Museum, Famagusta Gate and Technopolis 20 in Paphos, as well as at the Greek Saxophone Festival in Larisa. Its members are renowned performers and educators with active careers in Cyprus and abroad.
