The Taipei Saxophone Ensemble (TSE) was jointly established in 1993 by Yen Ching Shyan and Yen Kuo-cheng. It is Taiwan's first classical saxophone ensemble, and has spent more than twenty years introducing and cultivating Taiwan's thriving saxophone ensemble trend. In recent years, some TSE’s members who studied in France won numerous major awards at music competitions in Taiwan and abroad. After returning to Taiwan, these saxophonists jointly formed the TSE, while also inviting such well-known saxophonists as Daniel Gremelle, Hiroshi Hara,Jerome Laran, Nikita Zimin, and Inoue Asako to cooperate. The TSE has been the subject of FTV's exclusive broadcasts, and has obtained rave reviews from music lovers, while making its mark in history as a pioneer of saxophone music in Taiwan. Looking ahead to the future, the TSE will strive to achieve its three missions: diversification, globalization, and professionalization. As Taiwan's most professional ensemble, the TSE will present Taiwan's sound to the world.
