The saxophone quartet Elise Hall, formed in March 2006, wanted to pay tribute to one of the female musical personalities of the twentieth century who most contributed to extending the classical repertoire for saxophone: it is precisely Elise Hall, Wealthy American lady who, in addition to being one of the first women saxophonists, has dedicated her whole life to this instrument and to spreading its music.

The members of the group, formed at the Conservatories of Ferrara and Milan, boast important collaborations with the Filarmonica del Teatro La Fenice, the Filarmonica della Scala, the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano, the Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Torino, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia di Roma.

The ensemble has won prizes in national and international competitions and has a rich concert activity. Among the important exhibitions: Venice Biennale, Atlante Sonoro XXI, MITO Fringe, Festival Como Città della Musica, XIV International Saxophone Stage of Fermo.

Since 2012 they have been collaborating with the famous composer and pianist Michael Nyman who invited them to perform his compositions within his Italian tours, dedicating them unpublished pieces.

In order to promote and enrich the musical pages for sax collaborating with contemporary composers, the quartet is dedicated with particular attention to a repertoire that presents compositions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries that tend to intersect and merge multiple musical genres in a single discourse.
