Chinese Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated on July 7th on the Chinese lunar calendar, falls on August 9th this year. The holiday brings a rare opportunity to have a taste of French romance without traveling afar, as a French saxophone quartet is coming to town to stage an intimate concert.
 
Formed in Nantes in 2004, the Quartet Ellipsos is one of the best young French chamber music groups. The musicians are constantly exploring their instruments' technical and expressive possibilities and seeking new musical challenges.
 
The Quartet performs original classical works and transcriptions from composers such as Ravel, Grieg, Schumann, Debussy, Prokofiev or Bartok, as well as works from surprisingly different musical styles.
