Quimera Quintet

Quimera Quintet has been working since September 2017 under professors Luís Pipa and Luís Ribeiro. The project started as a quartet (SaxUM) and recently it became a quintet with Catarina Trindade (piano). SaxUM was founded in 2016 in Braga by students of the music graduation at University of Minho with the purpose of expanding the capacity of communication and to find new paradigms as well as new musical languages. It develops most of the activity in the North of Portugal. SaxUM performed at EurSax 2017 in Oporto. SaxUM took part in masterclasses with the rewarded Quatuor Morphing and also with great musicians like the oboist Omar Zoboli and the saxophonist Marcus Weiss. Catarina Trindade has worked with different chamber music groups formations throughout her academic career and had the opportunity to perform pieces written by the greatest composers like Arensky, Beethoven, Brahms, Franck and Smetana. Catarina is currently a member of EPTA Portugal’s board.
