The Vitral Saxophone Quartet combines the forces of professional saxophonists, Oscar Gongora, Roman Filiu, Alejandro Rios and Oliver Santana. Their goal is to demonstrate the beauty of the saxophone by focusing on a largely unknown, yet rich and colorful repertoire of Cuban and Latin American composers. This chamber music quartet was formed with the encouragement of the legendary classical clarinetist, Latin Jazz saxophonist, composer, and 14 time Grammy winner, Paquito D' Rivera. These musicians are each coming from a classical background, but they also are strongly connected to jazz. As a result, their performances are structured around the aesthetics of classical music but integrate jazz harmonies and improvisation.
