New Article by CoASQ Member Published

November 10, 2019

"Saxophone and Bach: An Unlikely Combo?" by City of Angels Saxophone Quartet member Cynthia Swanson takes a look at the role of the saxophone throughout its history and, through the journey of the Quartet's preparation of a Bach Fugue, explores how adaptable it is as a medium of expression for early music despite its birth as a modern instrument.
