Regularly invited to perform at France Musique, the Yendo Quartet has rapidly become known for its strong identity united by a common musical ideology from the quartet's multiple European origins. The quartet has recently released its first CD titled Utopicos, a project born from the adaption of Danzas Españolas for piano by Enrique Granados. In parallel the quartet commissioned a new work from Argentinian composer Luis Naón, a series of dances that can be played alongside those of Granados. A co-commission of Radio France, the premiere of Tangos Utopicos by Luis Naón took place in October 2015 on Radio France during Anne Montaron’s broadcast Alla Brève. After several performances at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, Yendo interpreted Phillipe Geiss’s concerto United colors of saxophone at the Joseph Kosma auditorium, CNRR de Nice with the city of Nice Wind Orchestra. In June 2015 the quartet was awarded 2nd prize at the International saxophone quartet competition in Strasbourg, SaxOpen. Following this they performed notably at the festivals of Vigan, Moissac, La Baule and d’Aulnay as well as in Alsace at Domain Gross. Their performance in Gaëlle Le Gallic’s broadcast on France Musique in September 2015 allowed them to continue there collaboration with virtuoso jazz-man Baptiste Hérbin, realising a “crossover” mixing romantic music with improvisation. The quartet have recently completed their master's degree in chamber music from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), where they studied with David Walter.
