Papandopulo Quartet consists of Croatian saxophone players, graduates from the Music Academy in Zagreb in class of Dragan Sremec. They pursued their education at Conservatoires in Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna and have taken part in masterclasses held by world renowned saxophone players. The Quartet performs regularly on many festivals in Croatia and abroad. Special attention has been given to a promotion of new music and to young Croatian and foreign composers without neglecting the classical music of the past centuries. The Quartet has performed with some outstanding international saxophonists such as Jean Yves Fourmeau, Arno Bornkamp, Lars Mlekusch, The Amstel Quartet, and with Croatian leading saxophonists: Dragan Sremec and The Zagreb Saxophone Quartet. Performances of Papandopulo Quartet have been described in superlatives by the critics. Members of the Quartet are also engaged in pedagogical work, teaching at Universities in Zagreb, Sarajevo and Novi Sad, music schools in Zagreb, Split, Jastrebarsko and Samobor, working as teachers on the workshops in Croatia and abroad. Together they founded School of Saxophone in Jaska, a highly successful international spring camp for saxophone students.
