The Palm Saxophone Duo is an innovative and forward-thinking duo with a focus on contemporary music. The duo comprises Alastair Penman (UK) and Matthew Lombard (South Africa) who both have successful solo careers in their own right. The pair met whilst studying with Rob Buckland at the Royal Northern College of Music and started working together after discovering a natural blend between their saxophone sounds and a shared musical vision. Since forming, the duo has given numerous recital performances of both traditional and contemporary repertoire. Now based in the UK and USA respectively, the duo enjoy meeting at international saxophone events to continue their performances together. As soloists Alastair and Matthew have given countless performances across Europe, Africa, America and Australia at some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls. Alastair is a City Music Foundation, BBC Introducing and Park Lane Group Artist and has won awards from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, RNCM and St Catharine’s College. Matthew was awarded second place overall in the First UNISA South African Wind Competition, having won the saxophone category prize. As a prominent educator in South Africa, Matthew planned the first National Saxophone Symposium.
