This collection of works for alto sax and piano represents a fine collection of elegant classical masterpieces by such renowned composers as Gluck - Rachmaninov - and Schubert - combined with compositions by their living counterparts Morgan - Raman and Taylor. A “musical marriage” has been created on this album - combining works by some of history’s greatest musical masters with contemporary prolific composers writing for the saxophone. These timeless works highlight the tonal beauty - sonority - color - and expressive qualities inherent in the saxophone.
