Superlocrian is a classical crossover chamber ensemble, directed by Sam Massey, that showcases the exciting possibilities when combining the sound worlds of woodwind and brass in a small ensemble setting.
Performing new and exciting arrangements, its repertoire ranges from Piazzolla’s ‘Libertango‘ to Benny Golson’s ‘I Remember Clifford‘, with a selection of music from the stage and screen and contemporary saxophone duets to enjoy too.
Following an acclaimed debut concert to a packed house at the Nourish Festival in Bovey Tracey in 2017, Superlocrian would be an ideal choice for a concert or music festival slot in 2018.
With excellent instrumentalists amongst its ranks, check out the videos below for an example of the beautiful array of colours and textures produced by the ensemble.
