Blattwerk Saxophone

Music from four saxophones & four centuries


The Blattwerk Saxophone Quartet

Concert tours took the musicians to Asia and into Europe. Two of the four Blattwerk members (Hartmut Salzmann and Bernd Stich) were founding members of the “Quintessence Saxophone Quintet” – for more than a decade they dominated the ensemble. In Timur Isakov and Alban Hauser they found a congenial partner in making the quartet complete and enriched it with his wonderful alto sax sound. Already Blattwerk are for more than 25 years together on stage. The motto: Four friends, four saxophones.

Bernd Stich, Timur Isakov, Hartmut Salzmann and Alban Hauser.
