A High-energy modular ensemble, Proteus Quartet collaborates with contemporary artists on new works exploring the capabilities of the saxophone quartet and its various instrumental combinations. Described by Le Voyageur as having “incredible precision and a great deal of emotion”, Proteus progresses from a foundation based on the exploration of traditional works, transcriptions and new music, to build a unique personal catalogue stimulated by projects, relationships and encounters with composers, artists and guest performers. Originating from all over Canada and formed in Paris in 2011, the members united through their combined curiosity and love for exploring chamber music specifically written for the saxophone quartet.
