The “Alliage Quintett” is one of the most creative and successful saxophone ensembles in the world. Its characteristics are a huge diversity in style, but also the blending of different epochs and ways of playing. Founded by Quebecer Daniel Gauthier, the ensemble is based in Germany and plays regularly all over the world.


Daniel Gauthier, is currently the only professor for classical saxophone in Germany (Hochschule für Musik, Cologne) and the ensemble’s leader and soprano saxophone. He is joined by three of today’s best soloists on saxophone Hayrapet Arakelyan, alto; Simon Hamrath, tenor; and Sebastian Pottmeier, baritone. The quintet is completed by the Korean pianist Jang Eun Bae, an experienced and well-versed chamber musician.


“Alliage” is the French term for “alloy”, referring to the saxophone as an alloy of copper and zinc. In the broader sense, it stands for the musical ideal of the five musicians forming one homogeneous whole, and for their perfectly balanced playing.
