PREVIEW
In 1934 Alexander Glazunov composed his Concerto for Alto Saxophone and String Orchestra, Op. 109. Although invented in the early 1840s, the saxophone was still fairly new and unfamiliar in Glazunov's day it remained untouched for a long time as it was considered 'middle class'. However, Glazunov was enthralled by the sound of the saxophone: a new timbre in the musical world. The Saxophone Concerto is deeply rooted in Romanticism, and has entered the standard saxophone repertoire. Dutch saxophonist and arranger Jos Dobbelstein transcribed the piece for Alto Saxophone with accompaniment of a Wind Ensemble.
