Nuances of phrase direction, vibrato, subtle dynamics, etc. are what bring this to life. Above all, respect the music--and giving it your serious time and attention is the first step. What is the translation of the title? How can you portray that sentiment/image via a thoughtful and detailed performance?

    These considerations are far more critical than guessing what horn you're playing, or whether your ligature is bare brass or painted blue. Those factors will not correct notes or create phrase direction where none exists.
    You're the man.

    I've listened to Delangle's recording many times. That's my goal (although I might never reach it).

    Hey guys
    I wanna post my recording of Tableaux de Provence. I played it at a contest about 3 weeks ago. It's all in one mp3 in the following order:
    Movement I
    Movement IV
    Movement III

    http://www.fileload.us/75762928-thomas_prix_musique.mp3

    Quality is not the best, but it's ok. Turn down your speaker towards the end because the clapping will be really loud.
    I know there's some wrong notes in Movement I and Movement III doesn't seem to be very clear (it was a big room).
    But I'm especially wondering about your comments of Movement IV. It's not the typical Delangle version.

    Please give me a feedback! Thanks

    I just typed out a long response and my browser closed on me. Sorry. Well, to sum it up,it sounds great. You just need to watch dynamics in places, and I would have preferred a more consistent vibrato. I noticed you didn't use vibrato on the 3rd movement, like delangle, but I prefer heavy vibrato on this for the effect. It sounds good either way, so I don't care too much. Also watch the sharpness up in the palm keys. Just need to work out some of the technical flubs and it'll be even better. Your recording of the 4th is much better than mine.

    Arctus,

    Pretty nice recording. It's so similar to Delangle's interpretation. I think you should put more of YOU in there, and some of the notes in the recording are just sitting there and not moving at all. maybe do some slight crescendo or decrescendo in there to give it more motion and life I kinda want to ask you where you go to school and what year are you. In a way you sound really much like me and I'm working on the piece for my recital in mid May. I'm using right now a series III with vandoren A17 and vandoren string lig and number 4 vandoren reed.

    Also, fourth mvoement the second your pitch for your second octave like D,E,F,G,A...etc. are all extremely sharp when you played it.

    Thanks for the comments to both of you!

    @NatureColor: You heard right, I listened to Delangle's recording a lot. Although we have to say my interpretation of the 4th movement is quite different then his. My teacher and I talked a lot about how to play this piece and we got to the conclusion that it sounds most like mourning when I play it in a slow and steady tempo.

    I'm actually living in Switzerland and I'm not planning to major in music. Music is just a big hobby for me. I'm 19 years old and have been playing the sax for 7 years. I'm taking private lessons with a student of Iwan Roth.
    Last year I spent a year in the States in a High School where I really started to appreciate the music. American High Schools are far ahead in the music classes they offer in school compared to Europe.

    Oh, my setup is a series II with Vandoren AL3 and Vandoren classic 3 reeds.

    I hope you record your recital and post it here!

    Thanks again for the comment!

    Just performed Jungle yesterday. Not nearly as amazing as O'Connor's presentation. But something I'm proud of. You'll need to turn the sound way up on your speakers to hear it though.

    Two new recordings up. The first is the first movement of the Marcello Concerto for Soprano solo and AATB Quartet. The second recording is the third movement, Ostinato, of a new quartet piece being written for our quartet by Joseph Robert Charron. He's a sophomore comp major here at my school.

    Marcello:
    Sop: Dr. Carolyn Bryan

    Charron:
    Sop: Ryan Douglas
    Alto: Reginaly Victor Smith Kelley
    Tenor: John Hardin
    Bari: Alex Sellers

    Here's a recording of me performing the Schmitt Legend in the Semi Finals of the JMLondeix Competition in Thailand. It has been slightly compressed so the sound is not 100%, but it's not awful. Roger Admiral on Piano (amazing!). Also, please note that 1 day before this performance I dropped my Alto, and still played it here... Not exactly the best low register response after the fall, but still playable.

    Wow, how many times is that now Steve? A little clumsy with your saxophones n'est pas? You should be more careful.

    Yes, Ricardo, I am well aware that I should be more careful. It was a short 'drop' but just enough to throw things a little out. Obviously, since I used it in the second round, it wasn't that bad.

    I've posted this somewhere else also, but it really belongs here. It was for an audition. Comments for a high school freshman player?
    Please and thank you.
    It's only cool until Kenny G does it.
