Nexas Quartet join forces with one Australia’s most recognised pianists, Piers Lane to present Elena Kats-Chernin’s Five Chapters for Saxophone Quartet and Piano. In Elenas words “The Five Chapters present a personal account of momentary events.” A work of mystery and expectation, vivacity, riddles and spiralling momentum towards time’s inexorable horizons. Nexas has always held the creation of new Australian music as one of their prerogatives and this program exemplifies this. The program is an all Australian affair with works by Brophy, Broadstock, Dargaville, Lickuta and Kats-Chernin.
The quartet has performed at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music in Townsville, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Recital Centre, Sydney Opera House, Uluru, Art not Apart Festival in Canberra and at World Saxophone Congresses (Scotland, France and Croatia). They have released 2 albums. Current 2016 and Ballads of the Pleasant Life ABC classics 2017.
