Program Notes

Kastner’s Variations faciles et brillantes are probably the first work composed for saxophone and piano, and are found in the same manuscript as the Sextour, the first work for saxophone ensemble, written before the whole saxophone family was even complete. The Sextour was later notated for six modern saxophones by the legendary Sigurd Raschèr without it requiring the smallest changes. The structure of the piece is uncomplicated, but it is a fine example of Kastner’s originality and musicianship.
