Marici Saxes’ debut album 'Light'.

Brimming with life and energy, this eclectic album of classical standards, folk and rare musical gems will redefine everything you thought you knew about the saxophone. Music includes film music, original works and classics from Faure, Rachmaninov, Piazzolla and Jenkins.

Online fans of the quartet had been enquiring about an album for years and it was actually this huge enthusiasm that spurred them to make the album, recorded at Peter Gabriel’s ‘Real World Studios’, Wiltshire.
