This Collection of works for alto sax and piano represents a fine collection of elegant classical masterpieces by such renowned composers as Gluck, Rachmaninov, and Schubert, combined with compositions by their living counterparts Morgan, Raman and Taylor.
A "musical marriage" has been created on this album, combining works by some of history's greatest musical masters with contemporary prolific composers writing for the saxophone. These timeless works highlight the tonal beauty, sonority, color, and expressive qualities inherent in the saxophone, which has the ability to sound at times like a mezzo-soprano, violinist, cellist, or flutist.
