Books | Alto Saxophone, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Alexander Glazunov
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Written in 1934 by Alexandre Glazounov (1865-1936), this Eb Concerto for Alto-Saxophone is a fourteen-minute piece dedicated to Sigmud M. Rasher, a famous Saxophonist and soloist.
Initially composed for Saxophone and Strings, there was no mention of a second composer, even though the 1936 publication adapted for Saxophone and Piano mentioned the name by André Petiot (1886-1976).

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.
The first performance of this concerto in public occurred after the death of its author, in Paris.

Alexandre Glazounov (1865-1936) is a famous Russian romantic composer. Considered as a prodigy and mentored by Belyayev, he composed ballets, concertos, symphonies and later became director of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory. He had a strong influence on Stravinsky's and Shostakovich's careers and died near Paris, in 1936.

This concerto is a classical piece of the Saxophone romantic repertoire.
