Concerto by Pierre Max Dubois is a piece of 18 minutes initially composed for an Alto Saxophone and a String Orchestra. These scores are for Saxophone and Piano. The Saxophone part is considered as difficult and requires a strong endurance and good technique.
This Concerto is divided into three distinct movements:
1. Lento, Cadenza e Allegro
Really interesting to play, it is a great piece for recitals and contests.
