Alexander Glazunov, one of the great masters of late Russian Romanticism, was fascinated by the saxophone and by jazz. In 1934 he wrote this beautiful saxophone concerto which has become a classic, combining romanticism with modern idioms as well. Erland von Koch's 1958 saxophone concerto is filled with experimental modern tonalities and fantastic effects for the saxophone. Both are must-haves for the serious saxophonist. Includes a printed music score on high-quality ivory paper; informative liner notes; and a compact disc featuring the concerti performed twice: first with soloist, then again with orchestral accompaniment only, minus you, the soloist. The compact disc has been voluminously indexed for your practice and performance ease. Conductor: Nayden Todorov. Soloist: Lawrence Gwozdz, alto saxophone. Ensemble: Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra.
