Persiflage Saxophone Quartet
From stately baroque to funky tango

Four saxophones playing music from four centuries


Saxophone quartet Persiflage draws from a diverse and often unexpected repertoire, whether taking a fresh look at traditional favourites or interpreting upbeat swing-style numbers. Recent successes include appearances at Belvoir Castle, New College Nottingham and Stapleford Park Country House Hotel, together with a variety of private, charitable and community functions. Another milestone has been the release of 'By Special Invitation', the quartet's second CD, following on from our debut CD ‘Time Signature’.

Our play-list extends from madrigals and traditional folk tunes to light swing and seasonal favourites. In addition to providing background music for private and social functions, we have a regular spot at various local country fairs and have performed at Nottingham University and at New College Nottingham. We have also shared concert platforms with choral groups including the Bridge Singers, Radcliffe Ladies Choir and the Bluecoat Singers.

Christmas is a busy time for us and we have been invited to take part in ‘Belvoir Fantasia’ at Belvoir Castle in recent years. We have also played for the annual carol service for members of Stapleford Park Country Club in Leicestershire and at the Christmas street market in the Lincolnshire village of Heighington. In addition, however, we also like to stage our own Christmas concerts.

You can keep up with our concert programme and listen to samples of our music or buy copies of our latest CD on our CD page.
