For its second album on Chandos, the young Ferio Saxophone Quartet presents a set of unique arrangements of milestones from the baroque repertoire, from Corelli via Bach to Handel. Including many premiere recordings, these fresh interpretations, full of flair and vitality, played on instruments that combine elements of brass and woodwind, bring the tunes and counterpoint to a fascinating new register. The Ferio Quartet plays with power, warmth, and dexterity.
Gramophone, Richard Bratby
Thoroughly Good, Jon Jacob
Ferio Saxophone Quartet play ‘Minuet’ from Handel’s Water Music Suite no. 2 HWV 349, arr. Iain Farrington – just one of the glorious milestones from the Baroque period which feature on the quartet’s latest disc ‘Revive’ on the Chandos label.
