Program Notes

This work displays elements of the traditional concerto grosso in its use of contrast between the saxophone quartet and the larger band; it also borrows the technique of interweaving the solo with the band from the sonata form. The styles of the two movements are well described by their titles: the quiet, peaceful, warm Serenity, with its cadenza showcasing the instrument’s melodic warmth; and the exuberant Revelry, featuring rhythmic complexities, technical display, and coloristic interplay between the saxophones and the band.
