Gabriel Grovlez (1879-1944) studied under Gabriel Fauré at the Paris Conservatoire. His compositions proved to be extremely versatile, from Operas and Ballets to solo works. Grovlez's Sarabande et Allegro is a sublime addition to the Alto Saxophone repertoire.

Grovlez's F minor Sarabande is in a steady, triple meter, superbly contrasted by the fast Allegro, composed in the relative major. All these features make for a thoroughly enjoyable and delightful performance!

Mélodiste né, Reynaldo Hahn (1875-1947) était doté d’une voix claire et émouvante qui faisait merveille dans les salons parisiens, comme le rappelle Proust : « (...) la tête légèrement renversée en arrière, la bouche mélancolique, un peu dédaigneuse, laissant s’échapper le flot rythmé de la voix la plus belle, la plus triste et la plus chaude qui ne fut jamais, cet "instrument de musique de génie" qui s'appelle Reynaldo Hahn étreint tous les cœurs, mouille tous les yeux, dans le frisson d’admiration qu’il propage au loin et qui nous fait trembler, nous courbe tous l’un après l’autre, dans une silencieuse et solennelle ondulation des blés sous le vent ».

As a musical genre of the 18th century, it is unusual that a divertimento is composed for the Alto Saxophone, an instrument which was not developed until the mid-19th Century. Yet Roger Boutry (b. 1932) proves with his Divertimento for Alto Saxophone that the combination of style and instrument make for a thrilling performance.

French composer Boutry won many prizes during his time at the Paris Conservatoire, as well as for his professional work. Divertimento is cast in three movements, beginning in a highly rhythmic and syncopated way before moving on to a moody and balladlike second movement that ends with a cadenza. This leads into the third movement, a light, presto finale. Boutry's Divertimento for Alto Saxophone and Piano accompaniment is an essential and varied addition to the advanced saxophonist's repertoire.
