The next Live at Five concert at Whittakers Music Museum is on April 21 and will feature the Auckland Saxophone Quartet. The quartet came into prominence playing several concerts in the early 1990s, with saxophone players Arthur Cameron, John Wil- liams, Murray Musson and Adrian Wadsworth. Jim Langabeer on soprano and alto sax, who joined the group in the late 1990s, con- tinues the tradition with the current members Nicola Haddock on baritone sax, Markus Fritsch on tenor sax and Miles Tremlett on alto sax. All four players bring a wealth of musicianship and saxophone playing with them and are also experi- enced and qualified music teachers. The group has a vast rep- ertoire of styles and moods ranging through classical and jazz, popular and con- cert music. This concert will feature some of the earliest saxo- phone quartets ever recorded, like Washington Post March from 1889 and Bull Frog Blues from 1916, along with the classic early jazz favourite St Louis Blues. The group also presents Prelude and Fugue by J S Bach, works by Gershwin, Glenn Miller and contempor- ary composer Bob Mintzer. The European school is represented by a rondo, and jazz works by the great Lennie Niehaus such as Waltz of the Sax and his arrangement of When The Saints Go Marching In are included. Tickets cost $25 with concessions available. Phone 372 9627 to book.
