Quatuor Ellipsos

"The flexibility of Reserve Reeds counterbalances the size of the instrument and its inertia. They create agility and lightness."

 



ABOUT Quatuor Ellipsos 

Flamboyance, mastery, and generosity are three terms that often come up when talking about this inimitable ensemble, which is recognized as one of the most prestigious saxophone quartets in the world. After more than nineteen years, their career has led them to give more than 1,000 concerts on the most prestigious French stages—from the Eiffel Tower to the Château de Versailles, from the Salle Pleyel to the Arsenal in Metz—and in more than fifteen countries.

Renowned for their versatility, the quartet turns both to the classical composition, with a marked predilection for the baroque repertoire, as well as to the music of our time. The ensemble has recorded five award-winning albums, the latest of which, Saxophonie, was released in 2021 and dedicated to the French composer Fernande Decruck.

Formed in 2004 in Nantes, the quartet was taught by Paul Meyer and Éric Le Sage at the Paris Conservatory. They won First Prize unanimously in the European competition "Musiques d'Ensemble" in 2007. An "Ellipsos Prize" has since been created, rewarding the best wind ensemble in the competition. Quatuor Ellipsos has since become the most broadcast saxophone quartet on France Musique and was also the first saxophone quartet invited to the Victoires de la Musique Classique.
