Program Notes

American composer Scott McAllister wrote X2, Concerto for saxophone quartet, dedicating it to the Raschèr Quartet. The work can be seen as having five sections, each separated by a saxophone cadenza. Throughout the piece, McAllister creatively displays the full range and various playing techniques of all four saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone). McAllister describes the work to include explosive driving sections and contrasting psychedelic passages, representing the energy and emotions of the “X” generation.
