Glazounov saxophone quartet was founded in 1991, but it is from 1993 on when it started its professional career participating in many events in the Canary Islands. In March 2011 they were invited by Fundación Juan March in Madrid to perform a concert written originally for saxophones, they have also performed in the Espacio Canarias in Madrid which depends on the Canary Island Government.
In April 2017 this quartet appeared in the auditorium of Zaragoza invited by Zaragoza’s Sociedad Filarmónica. For the last years they have also taken part in the Ciclos Culturales organized by Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, Caja Canarias and Fundación Mapfre Guanarteme.
In 2005 they were awarded with the prize "II PREMIO REGIONAL DE MÚSICA DE CÁMARA and PREMIO A LA MEJOR INTERPRETACIÓN DE COMPOSITOR CANARIO; given by CajaCanarias. This quartet is comprised of Gregorio Hernández (soprano saxophone), Francisco Dorta (alto sax), José Andrés Reyes (tenor sax) and Benigno Cedrés (baritone saxophone). The four components work now as saxophone teachers, part of some of the most important music bands and collaborators of Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife.
They defined themselves as travelers of time who aim to transmit the current popular folklore and music to their own time: the Roaring Twenties. They want to bring the emigrants of the islands nearer to the Canary people. Their inspiration? Big artists from now and always such as Louis Amstrong, Pepe Benavente, Los del Río, Nat King Cole, Goergie Dann or Alcide Núñez, a Canary descendant jazz forerunner.
Four Canary musicians build this group: the wind multi-instrumentalist Jairo Cabrera, the pianist Pablo “Pol” González, the contrabassist Carlos Perdomo and the drummer Amílcar Mendoza.
