    Blaze is the coming together of string quartet and saxophone to create a fusion of classical and contemporary music.

    For many years I have dreamed of creating a group in which I can bring together and express a sound born out of my many influences, from jazz and pop to classical and contemporary music. A sound that defies categorization. To me, performing with a string quartet feels like a very natural setting for the saxophone and offers extraordinary possibilities.
