Beaugeais’ composition & performance career in Australia and internationally:

2023 3MBS Radio Marathon Review

Beaugeais as Composer: “Terra Australis Incognita” for Sax, Cello, Piano.

“A fascinating work, it explores the many possibilities of the instruments… As a saxophonist, Beaugeais was ideally equipped to explore the musical possibilities of the instrument, and for this listener the result was a revelation.”

2023 ABC “Women of Note” Album Review

Beaugeais as Saxophonist:

“But it was Anne Boyd’s Beside Bamboo for Saxophone and Piano performed by Katia Beaugeais and Phillip Shovk that really caught me.
The delicate sound of a saxophone fusing with Boyd’s personal blend of contemporary composition
…had me stopping what I was doing…”
