Kurashiki International Saxophone Competition

October 31, 2018

At the 14th Kurashiki International Saxophone Competition the Kunitachi Saxophone Quartet won third prize in the Chamber Music Division! We performed David Maslanka's "Recitation Book" - a work that, although is quite popular in the States, was unfamiliar to many of the judges. Thank you to my fellow quartet members and Masato Kumoi for the great preparation for the competition! And thank you to Kurashiki for hosting such a wonderful festival and competition!
