Bohemia Saxophone Quartet (BSQ) is a top Czech music ensemble, which has, since its start in 1990, evolved into a highly professional entity with distinctly specific, well-balanced sound. Due to its rich repertoire the quartet has performed not only in concert halls and theatres, but also at alternative as well as jazz stages. BSQ is characterzed by wide, multi-genre dramaturgy encompassing original classical and jazz repertory for a saxophone quartet, original compositions mostly dedicated to the ensemble, and a large number of transcriptions and adaptations of various music styles and genres by the members of the ensemble. BSQ was a finalist in the IX. Concours International de Musique de Chambre in Paris. They have done concert tours in many European countries as well as in the USA, Israel, Jordan, Tunisia, Lebanon, Indonesia and Kuwait. BSQ has performed at many major international music festivals: Strunypodzimu – Strings of Autumn, Prague Spring Festival, Concentus Moraviae (the Czech Republic), L'Octobre Musical (Carthage), Hofkonzerte im Podewil (Berlin), Sächsich-Böhmisches Musikfestival, Festival of Nations in Tennessee, International Contemporary Music Festival Contrasts (Lvov), Klangspuren (Innsbruck), Saxophonmesse (Dresden) and 3ème stage d'interprétation et de virtuosite Saxiana (Paris).
