Armando Ghidoni: Sweet And Go (Saxophone)

Books | Saxophone

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Armando Ghidoni
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Premiered in 2013, Sweet And Go for solo Saxophone elegantly explores the poetic and technical resources of the instrument Armando Ghidoni knows so well (Concerto pour saxophone et orchestre à cordes; Concerto Grosso pour saxophone alto, piano et orchestre). 

The diptych, approximately five minutes in length, opens with an Adagio, a free de­clamation in recitative that is an oasis of tenderness to which the glissandi bring a whiff of the Orient. In contrast to this voluptuous dream, the second section, marked Vivo brilante ben ritmato, allows the soloist to display a sparkling virtuosity – slaps included! – without betraying the underlying spirit of improvisation. Melodies, rhythms, nuances and colours all contribute to this festival of ingenuity.
