Nexas Quartet

At the forefront of chamber music, Nexas Quartet is focused on promoting the musical diversity of the saxophone by showcasing its versatility and ability to cross genres. The group’s success comes from a combination of personalities, virtuosic saxophone skills, and their aptitude to program concerts of a wide appeal that has seen the ensemble perform in a multitude of settings as soloists, to collaborations with theatre and dance companies, and other artists and performers. The creation and championing of Australian music has always been a core goal of Nexas Quartet achieved through collaborations with leading composers. This culminated in their debut album ‘Current’ (released in 2016) featuring the music of Matthew Hindson, Elena Kats-Chernin, and Matthew Orlovich amongst others. In 2017 Nexas embarked upon a new collaboration with opera star Peter Colman-Wright resulting in their Weimar-Era themed ABC Classic release “Ballades of the Good Life” (4.5/5 from Limelight Magazine).
