    Default concertino de camera

    After a year or so, I have decided to try Ibert's concertino de camera movement 2... this is because I am auditioning for the US air force band youth contest, and this is the piece they want me to play for the audition. I was wondering if anyone had any pointers on this song before I get the sheet music?

    I happen to be playing this same piece tomorrow for an audition! Sometimes finding places to breathe were pretty difficult...

    I think there's also a recording of Marcel Mule playing it, somewhere on YouTube.

    Ack! His recording is not the best. He makes cuts and plays an 'easier' cadenza.

    Eugene Rousseau's is pretty good, as is Vincent Abato's recording, as a reference.
    You might also listen to John Edward-Kennedy's, too.

    You must make a decision whether or not to take the 'optional' altissimo in the slow part.
    When the fast part comes in, that is, when the line keeps returning to G#, keep the C# key down.
    Practice it slow, keep it slow--only increase tempo gradually. Oh, and memorize the piece, even if you use music during the audition/performance.

    Check out Dannel taking the slow movement up an octave, as written, it's the most convincing that I've heard...I wish he had posted the rest of it...

    My favorite Ibert recordings are:

    • Claude Delangle on CD "Under the Sign of the Sun" on the BIS label. He plays all the altissimo and the original cadenza. Brilliantly.
    • Arno Bornkamp on 2CD boxset "The Classical Saxophone". Doesn't do all the altissimo/cadenza stuff, but it is such beautiful and dazzling playing from one of the great modern masters.
    • Gary Louie on CD "Ibert: Oeuvres Variees"
    • Nadine Kauffmann on CD "Saxophone Concertos"
    • Nobuya Sugawa on CD "Saxophone Concertos" on the EMI Japan label
    • Jean-Yves Fourmeau on CD "Soliste" on the Corelia label

    The Delangle is essential, and the others are most definitely worth checking out.

    So other than me and Saxmoose, who else is auditioning for the USAF band youth competition?

    I must agree that Delangle's interpretation is one of the best out there! Sugawa seems to take it a little under tempo, but doing so seemed to add more hidden brilliance to the piece.

    Oh, goodness.

    I hope you all did well on your auditions! I learned the Ibert Concertino for this very competition, but gave it up for a lesson with Otis Murphy

    I played this at Solo and Ensemble... unaccompanied ... but I got a one on it! I hope you all did well!

    Oops. That's what happens when you post in a hurry. It won't be my last mistake, either
