ONLINE Workshop

with the raschèr saxophone quartet


Since its founding in 1969, the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet has performed regularly in the most important concert halls in the United States, Asia and Europe (Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center New York, Kennedy Center Washington DC, Opera Bastille Paris, Royal Festival Hall London, Philharmonie Cologne, Finlandia Hall Helsinki, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Schauspielhaus Berlin, Musikverein Vienna, Tonhalle Zürich, Parco della Musica Rome, Dewan Filharmonik Petronas Kuala Lumpur, National Concert Hall Taipei, etc.).


The "Wiener Zeitung" called the quartet the "uncrowned kings of the saxophone" and a critic of the german newspaper "Die Welt" claimed that "if there were an Olympic discipline of virtuoso brass playing, then the "Raschèr Saxophone Quartet from the USA would have to receive a gold medal".
