Concertino Da Camera, written in 1935 by Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) was a small concerto for alto-saxophone and eleven instruments: flute, bassoon, oboe, horn, trumpet and strings. This score is for alto saxophone and piano. This Concertino, in two movements, Allegro con moto and Larghetto - Animato Molto, is dedicated to the saxophonist Sigurd Rascher and stands out for its large use of the alto saxophone. It can be technically challenging and has a strong lyrical part. Its author, Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) is a neoclassical composer who won the Prix de Rome in 1919. He composed many symphonic suites, operas and seven orchestras, including Angelique (1926) and Divertissement (1930). He was also in charge of the Accademie de France in the Villa Medicis (Roma) and was later administrator for the Paris Opera. This concerto has some similarities with his Flute Concerto (1934), also published by Alphonse Leduc.
