FERIO SAXOPHONE QUARTET
SOPRANO Huw Wiggin
ALTO Ellie McMurray
TENOR Anthony Brown
BARITONE Katie Samways
As one of the leading British saxophone quartets among the new generation of artists, the Ferio Saxophone Quartet consistently receives a highly enthusiastic reception from audiences and critics alike.
In 2015 Ferio made their debut at the Purcell Room, as winners of The Philharmonia/Martin Musical Ensemble Award and during the same year were winners of the Royal Over-Seas League’s Ensemble Competition. They received the Tunnell Trust Award in 2014/15 and were Park Lane Group Artists for the 2016 season.
Commissioning new music is also an important strand of Ferio’s work. They have also worked closely with composer Guillermo Lago and commissioned him to write a new work for the quartet. The resulting composition, inspired by three of William Wordsworth’s poems, received its premiere performance at St John’s Smith Square, London, in April 2017.
The quartet recently launched an exciting collaboration with young vocal ensemble the Corvus Consort. Their first project together was a video recorded in isolation and produced during the first Coronavirus lockdown, which was premiered by The Sixteen as part of their Sounds Sublime Online Festival in July 2020, and they now look forward to performing live together at various venues during 2021.
