Equinox Saxophone Ensemble have just launched their first CD Partial Eclipse. As well as pieces featuring the full group of nine players and smaller chamber groups, the title track is a new work by Nigel Wood, and is a unique combination of EWI (electronic wind instrument) and sax ensemble. Listen to a clip of Partial Eclipse.
The piece will be published next year by Saxtet Publications. The CD also includes a varied collection of other new compositions and arrangements for saxes, and includes an octet version of Celtic Suite by Gavin Whitlock.
Established in 2005 under the direction of Alistair Parnell, Midlands-based Equinox are fast developing a reputation for presenting exciting and diverse music for the saxophone, and perform regularly in the region. Repertoire and influences include contemporary classical, jazz and folk inspired music.
