Abstract:
This study documents the history of the Hollywood Saxophone Quartet and its role in establishing the saxophone quartet as a serious medium for chamber music in the United States. An abbreviated history of saxophone quartets in the United States is provided, including a brief history of the Marcel Mule Saxophone Quartet in France. This ensemble in particular significantly influenced the Hollywood Saxophone Quartet's formation, programming and mission. The history of the Hollywood Saxophone Quartet follows, including its performing, commissioning, and recording activities, as well as biographical information for its members. This introduction is complemented by a discussion of the legacy of the group through its influence on subsequent saxophone ensembles on a national and international scale. Finally, conclusions drawn from this research place the Hollywood Saxophone Quartet in a historical context in the United States.
