The Quartetto di Sassofoni Arcadia is characterised by the different didactic and artistics experiences of the four sax players who have formed it in 1995.

Their studies with world famous masters of saxphone (D. Deffayet, J.M. Londeix, I. Roth), their concerts held at important musical events (the World-Wide Masterclass of Saxphone in Sweden '92, the 10th International Festival of Saxophone at Pesaro '92, the 11th International Festival of Saxophone at Valencia '97) their collaboration with different chamber orchestra and other formations (Orchestra V. Bellini of Palermo, Gruppo da Camera of Palermo, Ente Lirico of Cagliari, Teatro "Bellini" of Catania, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della R.A.I.), thanks to the assistance of important musical associations (Ente Autonomo Teatro Massimo Bellini of Palermo, Ass. Amici della Musica, etc.), they form a panel of experience that brought the four of Arcadia to play in several italians cities (Napoli, Catania, Agrigento, Siracusa, Sassari, Trapani, Caltanissetta, Noto, Cagliari, Stresa, Torino, Ragusa, etc.). They won several National and International Music Competitions.
