Formed in 2002, the award winning Lunar Saxophone Quartet has developed a reputation for their commitment to composer/performer collaborations, leading to dozens of commissions from a variety of different composers. Performances have spanned a wide range of occasions, from Bryn Terfel’s ‘Faenol Festival’ and the Welsh BBC Proms, to live broadcasts on BBC TV and Radio.
This new disc features a programme of newly commissioned works by some of Wales’s youngest and most gifted composers together with those of more established figures.
