premiere recording of all arrangements by Iain Farrington

(released November 2018)

Revive Album Cover

For its second album on Chandos, the Ferio Saxophone Quartet presents a set of unique arrangements of milestones from the baroque repertoire, from Corelli via Bach to Handel.

Including many premiere recordings, these fresh interpretations, full of flair and vitality, played on instruments that combine elements of brass and woodwind, bring the tunes and counterpoint to a fascinating new register. The Ferio Quartet plays with power, warmth, and dexterity.

Reviews for Revive Album 


“Iain Farrington’s excellently crafted arrangements of largely familiar works by the likes of Purcell and Handel are performed here with panache by this super-versatile group.” 

Jeremy Pound – BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes section) – January 2019


“… These players also have a remarkable way of generating an atmosphere through tone-colour… an enjoyable programme …”

Richard Bratby – Gramophone magazine – December 2018
