Formed in 1985 the Apollo Saxophone Quartet has enjoyed four decades at the forefront of the UK classical music scene, commissioning and premiering well over new 100 works.

This concert offers a show of two contrasting halves. The first set features five recent commissions from some of the most exciting new generation of UK composers.

The second half brings to Skipton Town Hall the Quartet’s acclaimed music with silent film project Journey Across the Impossible. Expect acrobatic flies, dancing pigs, collapsing bridges, drunken hallucinations, exploding heads and an infernal cakewalk, all beautifully set to music and performed live to film in the age-old tradition from the very first years of the moving image.

Programme to include:  

JENNI WATSON Radius
DANI HOWARD Neverland
GRACE-EVANGELINE MASON In the Fragrant Air
ADAM CAIRD Saxophonic Movements

For a full list of the music to be performed and more information about the artists, see skiptonmusic.org.uk

Season tickets are available to book here; tickets for individual concerts will be available from September.

Skipton Music are delighted that the Apollo Saxophone Quartet will also be the guest artists for their Annual Schools Concert from 2-3pm.
