Program Notes

I have always had a deep and resounding love for the saxophone family, and I was lucky in my musical upbringing to be surrounded by some truly fantastic saxophonists, both in the classical and jazz idiom. For these reasons, I arranged the 6th Piano Etude of Nikolai Kapustin’s 8 Concert Etudes for saxophone quartet. The etude is entitled Pastoral and I thought the airiness and beautiful technical facility of the composition would lay well for four saxophones
