Prélude was born of the restlessness of four professional saxophonists, with inexhaustible spirit of improvement and a life dedicated to the study and pedagogy of the saxophone. The Quartet interprets a wide repertoire that includes transcriptions of baroque and classical works, original works for saxophone, as well as works of popular character like tango, Spanish music or music with jazz connotations. The members of the quartet continue to take classes with renowned saxophonists such as Habanera saxophones quartet, Diastema saxophone quartet, Claude Delangle, Arno Bornkamp, Vincent David, etc. From the pedagogical point of view, the members teach numerous courses and take part in conferences throughout Andalusia and their main objective is to instill the appreciation for music and the saxophone in others. Much of the quartet's repertoire is based on the original quartets for saxophone, many of which were premiered and dedicated to the quartet itself. The quartet is in constant contact with the composers, working with them on the timbral and expressive possibilities of the saxophone and the extension. At the moment, all of the members of the quartet are teachers in different conservatories in Andalusia.
