Kugel Saxophone Quartet

Kugel Ensemble was created in 2016 in the saxophone class of the Hochschule für Musik in Basel, where four musicians of Chinese and Spanish nationality studied for the “Master in Performance” with the saxophonist Marcus Weiss. The main objective of this project was to bring the contemporary music closer to the audience. The Ensemble-members took part in master classes with the pianist Ferenc Rados and the saxophonist Rico Gubler. Since the beginning they have been in regular classes with the viola player Silvia Simionescu and the saxophonists Pilippe Koerper and Marcus Weiss. In 2017 they took part in the International Saxophone Congress in Zurich and after the event they have got programmed concerts in Basel and invitations for some international competitions and music events.
