Program Notes

Concerto Maxo Mosso by Mike Mower (b. 1958) is a virtuoso two-movement work for saxophone quartet and wind orchestra. It was commissioned by the Osland Saxophone Quartet and the University of Kentucky Wind Symphony.

The composer stated that since the Osland Quartet "sits comfortably between jazz and classical music, [I decided] to give the piece a jazz tinge with some Samba and Partido Alto rhythms interjecting here and there. The first movement is in the shape of an arch which creeps in and faces away. Odd time signatures creep into the second movement, jostling for importance against the Latin groove."
