The Apollo Saxophone Quartet and LDSM share a 30th Anniversary this year and to celebrate this milestone we have commissioned a work to add to the remarkable corpus the ASQ has commissioned or premiered, including Richard Rodney Bennett’s 1994 Quartet. As part of a major new strand in this year’s Festival (see also Friday), the ASQ’s members will perform music they have composed to accompany the remarkably inventive and witty silent films of the early cinematic pioneer Georges Meliès.
