Don't miss the opportunity to hear this awarding-winning UK saxophone quartet with a compelling, musically varied programme. Classic formality to blended barber-shop smoothness with works from Bach to Reinhart.

Commissioning new music is an important strand of Ferio’s work. As Park Lane Group Artists, they gave the world premiere of a work by Laura Bowler which they subsequently performed at Wigmore Hall. They also work closely with composer Guillermo Lago and commissioned him to write a new work for the quartet. The resulting composition, inspired by three of William Wordsworth's poems, received its premiere performance at St. John's Smith Square, London, in April 2017. They also recently gave the first performance of ‘Close Shave’ by Simon Rowland-Jones, which was commissioned by the St. John’s Smith Square Young Artists’ Scheme.

Ferio has signed with Chandos Records and their debut commercial CD went on general release in July 2017. In November the quartet travel to New Zealand giving concerts on a tour organised by the Royal Over-Seas League; they will also join the panel of adjudicators for the Pettman/ROSL Arts Scholarship auditions. In early 2018 they make their next recording for Chandos and give two concerts at Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts.
