Premiere Recording - William Bolcom's:
Concerto Grosso for Sax Quartet and Band

​Michael Haithcock - Michigan Symphony Band

Equilibrium Recordings

AVAILABLE ON ITUNES

"The highlight of the album is, for me, the poignant 'Song Without Words.' Beautiful playing by the Donald Sinta Quartet."

-American Record Guide

​"The four movements are all immensely entertaining to listen to but require a very good quartet of four "soloistic" players. The Donald Sinta Saxophone Quartet consists of Daniel Hawthorne-Foss, Joseph Girard, Dan Graser and Zach Stern and they really are superb musicians!"

-Audiophile Audition

Concerto Grosso for Saxophone Quartet and Band (2010) - Live!

William Bolcom

May 5, 2011

Hill Auditorium, Ann Arbor, MI

University of Michigan Symphony Band, conducted by Michael Haithcock

"Donald Sinta is probably the most influential saxophone teacher in existence, and a group called the Donald Sinta Quartet had better be up to a very high standard to merit that name.  I've heard them and they are!  Nothing pleases me more than to write and sing their praises.  Already they are evidently on their way, and deservedly so."

-Pulitzer Prize winning composer, William Bolcom

Movement I: Lively

Movement II: Song Without Words
