The SIGNUM saxophone quartet is everything – except ordinary: four outstanding saxophonists who have known each other since their youth and have been reinventing themselves ever since. Musical genre crossover, in which a deep devotion to the classic string quartet sound goes hand in hand with great enthusiasm for the rock classics of our time. In addition, an incomparable charisma that puts the icing on the impressive, virtuoso skills of Blaž Kemperle, Jacopo Taddei, Alan Lužar and Guerino Bellarosa.

From the very first moment of their performance, these exceptional musicians set off emotionally-charged musical fireworks – characterized by an insatiable curiosity for stylistic musical experiments on the edge of the ordinary, and a constant search for the perfect ensemble sound. Whether original compositions for saxophone quartet, arrangements of orchestral works, baroque compositions or rock music, SIGNUM’s unwavering love of music spans almost every era and genre. It’s difficult to put into words this masterful pleasure of playing. You simply have to experience it.

Award winners at several international competitions, the young SIGNUM saxophone quartet debuted at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2013. Quickly, the quartet expanded on its success: As “Rising Stars” of the European Concert Hall Organization (ECHO) in 2014/15, the SIGNUMs have stepped onto the big stages of the world, where they have been at home for years now.

The SIGNUM saxophone quartet is regularly on everyone’s lips not only through its concerts in quartet formation but also through collaborations with fellow musicians. With violinist star Daniel Hope, the four of them not only appeared together in front of the TV camera for the arte tv format “Hope@Home”, but also made several stage appearances together.

In the upcoming season, the SIGNUMs will be heard with Fazil Say, Ksenija Sidorova, Alexej Gerassimez, Kai Schumacher, Daniel Hope, and many other chamber musicians.

They are also looking forward to various orchestral concerts in 2024, including the world premiere of a concert written specifically for them by Christian Jost.

After a successful one-month Australian tour and immediate re-invitation for 2025, in 2024 the SIGNUMs will now also conquer Japan and China.

A special project close to their heart is the family concert program “SIGNUM4kids”, with which the SIGNUM saxophone quartet is directed specifically at young music lovers and the audience of tomorrow.

The SIGNUM saxophone quartet has already released several albums. In 2021, “Echoes,” the first recording on the Deutsche Grammophon label, was released with works by Max Richter, John Dowland, Peter Gregson, Guillermo Lago and Joep Beving. The ensemble will present its new album in 2024.

The SIGNUM saxophone quartet is “Selmer Paris & D’Addario Woodwinds Artist”.
