Aria by Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) is a lyrical piece written in 1936 for advanced Alto Saxophone players. Technically and musically challenging, being able to master vibrato and control your instrument well will be greatly beneficial to effective playing of this piece.

Dedicated to the famous French Saxophonist Marcel Mule, Aria required from the player a good mastery of breathing as there are few rests and this also suggests that the intonation should be applied carefully as well.
A relaxed piece that's really popular among players, this piece can remind of the style of J. S. Bach and is thoroughly enjoyable.

Eugène Bozza won different prizes at the Conservatoire de Paris such as the First Prizes for the Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. He also composed several operas, chamber works and ballets among others.

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.

Many of the composer's works show neo-classical features, which is also the case in Sarabande et Allegro, where the texture is predominantly melody-dominated homophony, perfect cadences are frequently heard, and modulations to related keys occur. 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!

Jolivet draws on acoustics and atonality, as heard in his Impromptu Fantasy. The piece requires advanced skills due to its use of complex rhythms and harmonics.

The concerto starts with an Allegro moderato in 4/4, followed by an Andante transition mainly in C flat major at 3/4, and ending on a Fugato in 12/8.

As the title suggests, this Sonatine interprets musical elements of sport. With this in mind, Tcherepnine's Sonatine is a highly amusing, energetic and fun piece to play for saxophonists.

Russian born composer Alexandre Tcherepnine (1899-1977), moved to Paris with his family in 1921 following the increasingly hostile political environment in Russia. During WWII, Tcherepnine's composing activities virtually stopped. However, just before doing so, he composed his Sonatine Sportive. The first movement interprets boxers, with pulsating quavers in the piano part representing a defence. Movement two suggests a rest that the two players take before the 'racing' third movement, written in the form of a canon. With such stimulating and imaginative creativity, Tcherepnine's Sonatine is essential to the saxophonist's repertoire.

As the Saxophone is commonly associated with the jazz style, classical music for the instrument had always been lacking, so when Paul Bonneau composed his Caprice en forme de Valse for solo Saxophone in 1950, it was well-received by performers and listeners of the genre.

Bonneau's composing was highly versatile, ranging from over fifty film scores, operettas, songs and other pieces for Saxophone, including a concerto. Caprice en forme de Valse, however, was particularly acclaimed for having no accompaniment and for its flexibility to be performed on all members of the Saxophone family. It contains typically French characteristics including chromaticism and difficult technical passages. All these elements combine to make for an enjoyable and challenging piece for saxophonists.
