RUMORES DE LA CALETA from Recuerdos de viaje, op. 71 by Isaac Albéniz. Arrangement for saxophone quartet by Adolf Ventas

When Adolf Ventas reached his 90th birthday, SAX 3+1 thought that the best way of honouring such a relevant figure in the history of saxophone in Catalonia and Spain would be to record an album with all his compositions for saxophone quartet.

Therefore, we compiled, worked and recorded his four saxophone quartets and the arrangements of the music that he loved.

Nacho Gascón, soprano saxophone
Rubén Domingo, alto saxophone
Efrem Roca, tenor saxophone
Joan Martí-Frasquier, baritone saxophone

Recorded at Stinky Studio (Lliçà de Vall, Catalonia/Spain) between November 2011 and January 2012 for Ars Harmonica Records: AH228
Recorded and produced by Nacho Gascón
Photos and design by Pep Aguareles
