The Saxophone virtuoso in a program of swinging American Classics

An infectious saxophone craze swept across the post-war US. The bubbling optimism of the time combined with the effect of virtuosi such as Rudy Wiedoeft sparked a mania. Everyone wanted to play the sax. It was this era that transformed the image of the sax from novelty gimmick to king of cool.
Join award-winning saxophonist Nicholas Russoniello and the Golden Age Quartet as they rekindle the sound spectrum of George Gershwin, Charlie Chaplin and Erwin Schulhoff with gut strings and an original 1920s C melody saxophone.
