Luke Bedford’s Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra premièred in Berlin

Reading time: 1 min. Luke Bedford

Saxophones are something of outsiders in the orchestral world, only occasionally called upon. And yet four saxophones have the power to dominate an entire orchestra. I wanted to create a work where both the quartet and the orchestra share ideas and allow each other to sing. There is drama in every movement, but the instruments face it together. (Luke Bedford)

Luke Bedford’s Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra will receive its world première on 18 October at the Berliner Philharmonie.

Ben Gernon conducts the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and the Arcis Saxophon Quartett, to whom the work is dedicated.
