"Immense thanks to Sax Ecosse for an outstanding concert – a thoughtfully planned programme, charmingly and entertainingly introduced, and brilliantly executed. The concert drew one of our largest audiences, with lots of new faces, and made a compelling case for the saxophone taking its place in chamber music just as much as in the jazz club."

John Fox, President, Music In Peebles, April 2014

"Sax Ecosse…were a joy in every way; professional expertise and unassuming manners. They had a cleverly mixed programme of technically challenging pieces, many unknown to us but presented with an explanation that aided our appreciation. This was mixed with several well loved favourites with the crowning touch of their encore 'Bolero' by Ravel which they played while walking around the hall. If they had not already brought the house down this would have done it!"
