Dialectica - Live at the Music Gallery

by Live At The Music Gallery

Starry Night 04:42
Mambo 04:55


Recorded October 15, 2016

Dialectica is an all-female saxophone quartet from Toronto. With equal parts jazz and classical saxophonists, Dialectica attempts to find an aesthetic truth through the discourse of these two musical points of view, akin to the Dialectic method of philosophy found in Plato’s Socratic Dialogues. Dialectica plays a unique repertoire of all-original, Canadian music by saxophonist/composers Shannon Graham and Chelsea McBride, and Mexican-Canadian composer Javier Vazquez, in a style that combines jazz, classical, and Latin music.

Dialectica’s performance opening for Sarah Neufeld as part of the X Avant festival in 2016 was one of their first gigs. They have since performed at Music Mondays series at Church of the Holy Trinity, the Toronto Jazz Festival, and the Intersection New Music festival at Yonge Dundas Square.
