Saxophonist of PRISM Quartet & NU Associate Professor
Saxophonist Taimur Sullivan enjoys a prolific career as a soloist, chamber musician, and member of the acclaimed PRISM Quartet. His performances have taken him from the stages of Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Knitting Factory, to engagements in Russia, England, Germany, and throughout Latin America. Taimur garnered critical praise as "outstanding...his melodies phrased as if this were an old and cherished classic, his virtuosity supreme" (New York Times), and as a player of "dazzling proficiency" (American Record Guide).
Mr. Sullivan has dedicated much of his career to promoting new repertoire for the saxophone, and has given the premieres of over 150 solo and chamber works. In honor of his distinguished record of promoting and presenting new works for the saxophone, the New York-based arts advocacy organization Meet The Composer named him one of eight "Soloist Champions" in the United States. Mr. Sullivan appears on over 25 recordings, and most recently has recorded with artists as diverse as Music from China, an ensemble of traditional Chinese instruments, The Crossing, a choir specializing in contemporary vocal music, and jazz saxophonists Ravi Coltrane, Chris Potter, Rudresh Mahanthappa, and David Liebman.
Taimur Sullivan is the Associate Professor of Saxophone at Northwestern University.
