Combining the diverse paths of two pairs of saxophone players, ‘Compass’ – Christina Leonard, Jeremy Rose, Matthew Ottignon, Luke Gilmore - form one of the most interesting and dynamic groups to emerge in Australia’s music scene. Inspired by the idea of breaking down barriers between classical music and improvised jazz, Compass takes an innovative and flexible approach to the Saxophone Quartet, combining influences that are, distinct, new and unusual. Committed to expanding the context and genre of the Saxophone Quartet, ‘Compass’ have and plan to continue to commission new works to be written for collaborations with some of Australia’s finest instrumentalists. The composers and special guest performers on the night are Marcello Maio (piano accordion) and Julian Curwin (guitar).
