Synopsis

Product Description
Many classical composers have been seduced by the sound and wide range of colors and sonorities the saxophone produces. From Glazunov's concerto to present day composers, the repertoire has grown to include some fascinating works. This disc gathers together French works with a very Mediterranean feel. The sultry sound of the saxophone is used to tremendous effect in Schmitt's exotic Légende. Tomasi's imposing concerto and the vibrant Tableaux de Provence by Paule Maurice will be discoveries for most listeners. Theodore Kerkezos is one of the leading saxophonists of his generation, and a champion of modern music. He is also active in preserving and bringing to a wider audience the repertoire for his instrument - much of which is little known.
