Marici Saxes are a dynamic saxophone quartet from London, UK: four unique musicians brought together through a craving for collective creativity that has led them to establish a firm reputation for excellence. Formed in 2010, their innovative approach to music has seen their popularity rise and resonate with audiences throughout the UK and beyond.
Alongside their busy recital and festival schedule in the UK, the group has performed internationally in Croatia at the World Saxophone Congress, in Italy by invitation from composer Michael Nyman, an extensive tour of China and most recently a sold-out recital at Opera Ghent in Belgium.
2017 saw the release of the quartet’s much anticipated debut album ‘Light’. This led to a live performance on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ programme as well as an invitation to the Classic FM studios to film footage for their online library and social media feed. Album tracks were also played on BBC Radio 3’s ‘BBC Introducing’ with one of baritone player Josie Simmons’ pieces featuring as part of International Women’s Day. The quartet is thrilled to have received a Help Musicians ‘Do it Differently’ Award for their second album, as well as support from the Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain.
Marici Saxes have amassed over 600,000 YouTube views of their video of Piazzolla’s Libertango, adding to over 1.5million total views of their videos online. With 6,000 followers on Facebook, they continue to delight audiences worldwide with their scintillating sounds and lighter classical fare.
