A different sax quartet…
Dialectica is an all-female saxophone quartet from Toronto. With equal parts jazz and classical saxophonists, Dialectica explores a new musical identity through the fusion of these two genres.
In 2018 they released their self-titled debut record and in 2019 Dialectica appeared in Canadian film maker Atom Egoyan’s film “Guest of Honour”. The first track of their record, “The Puppetmaster” plays an important role in the story.
Dialectica has found its place among jazz festivals and classical music series. Performance highlights include the Toronto Jazz Festival, Music Gallery’s X Avant Festival, Music Mondays series at Church of the Holy Trinity, and the Intersection new music festival at Yonge and Dundas square.
Dialectica’s mission is to challenge the assumptions people make about the saxophone, saxophonists, and the arbitrary divisions between genres of music. Can the world handle more than one female saxophonist in one place? Can the saxophone find a new identity beyond the days of Careless Whisper and Baker Street?
