The Score Classical 2013 is series of inspired international classical concerts and has been developed to enrich and deepen the classical music scene here in Dubai. The second sumptuous concert features the uncrowned Kings of the Classical Saxophone, the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet at the stunning Madinat Theatre.

A rare treat for lovers and followers of Classical music, Raschèr Saxophone Quartet appears regularly at major concert halls around the world - US: Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center in New York, Opera Bastille Paris, Royal Festival Hall London, Philharmonie Cologne and Parco della Musica Rome. Die Welt claimed, “If there were an Olympic discipline for virtuoso wind playing, the Raschèr Quartet would definitely receive a gold medal.”

The Quartet has inspired over 450 composers to dedicate music to them, including, Aho, Berio, Bergman, Bialas, Dean, Denhoff, Donatoni, Firsowa, Franke, Glass, Gubaidulina, Halffter, Kagel, Maros, Nørgard, Rosenblum, Sandström, Tüür, Wuorinen, Xenakis and Chen Yi. All of these composers, and many more, have shared an enthusiasm for the four musicians' unique homogeneous tone quality, virtuosity and dynamic interpretation of new and old music.
