Contemporary Italian-French composer, Armando Ghidoni brings together influences of both Italy and France in his music. Also, as an expert on jazz, the harmonies and rhythms of the composer's works reflect a huge diversity, Dans L'Air for Alto Saxophone and Piano being no exception.
Ghidoni is significant within the contemporary French music school and his works are regularly chosen as set pieces for leading national and international competitions. Dans L'Air reflects Ghidoni's mastery of a range of instruments, suitable for intermediate players. With a typical performance lasting about three minutes and twenty seconds, Dans L'Air is an exciting addition to the intermediate Alto Saxophone repertoire.
