Polaris Duo Saxophone & Harp Database

Polaris Duo Saxophone & Harp Database

This article was posted on 17 Jun 2021.

To celebrate 10 years of playing together, the Polaris Duo has launched a new Saxophone & Harp Database, featuring a repertoire list (with links to recordings), plus details of other ensembles and available albums of music for the combination.

The duo hopes the free resource (available at www.polarisduo.com/saxandharpdatabase) will make it easier for other saxophone and harp duos to find repertoire and recordings, and for audiences to discover the versatility this instrumentation can offer. If you’d like to add something to the database, you can submit new items via the contact form at the bottom of the database webpage or by emailing info@polarisduo.com

Gillian Blair (saxophone) and Elinor Nicholson (harp) formed the Polaris Duo in 2011 while studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. The duo is dedicated to presenting new music and expanding the repertoire for this uncommon pairing of instruments, which has led to numerous UK, European and world premieres of new arrangements and commissions.
