    Default Latest Releases

    OK. More classical saxophone CDs recorded either this year or in recent years, and just now available (they're all in my collection as I'm writing this).

    These two have been mentioned in this thread recently:

    Claude Delangle
    "Under the Sign of the Sun" (Alto/Soprano Saxophone and Orchestra)
    BIS CD-1357
    --Ibert: Concertino da Camera
    --Tomasi: Concerto
    --Maurice: Tableaux de Provence
    --Schmitt: Legende
    etc.

    Masato Kumoi
    "Sinfonia" (Soprano Saxophone and Ensemble)
    Cryston OVCC-00034
    (all C.P.E. Bach)
    --Sinfonia in D Major
    --Flute Concerto in D Minor
    --Variationen uber die Folie d' Espagnole
    etc.

    I don't believe the following have been announced in this thread before:

    Masato Kumoi
    "Simple Songs" (Alto/Soprano Saxophone and Piano)
    CAFUA CACG-0093
    --Bernstein: A Simple Song
    --Bach: Three Choralvorspiele
    --Desenclos: Prelude, Cadence et Finale
    --Maslanka: Sonata
    etc.

    Masato Kumoi (Yes, again; but I think he's that good.)
    "The Dream Net" (Alto/Soprano Saxophone and Ensemble)
    CAFUA CACG-0075
    --Benson:The Dream Net
    --Glazunov: Concerto
    --Canteloube: Chants d' Auvergne (BTW, these pieces translate beautifully to the saxophone and I regard them as the "French counterpart" to Vaughan-Williams' "Six Studies in English Folksong". Does anyone know of another saxophone recording of this besides "In Memory" by Kenneth Tse?)
    etc.

    Joaquin Franco-Pallas
    "Saxtendre" (Alto Saxophone and Piano)
    Dahiz 016-CD
    --Faure: Fantaisie
    --Faure: Elegie
    --Mendelssohn: Romance sans Paroles
    --Leclair: Adagio
    --Handel: Sicilienne et Gigue
    --Martini: Les Mutons
    etc.

    Katsuki Tochio
    "Schubert - Schumann" (Baritone Saxophone and Piano)
    Meister Music MM-1189
    --Schubert: Sonate, D. 821
    --Schumann: Phantasiestucke
    --Schumann: Dichterliebe
    --Schubert: An die Musik

    Quartetto di Sassofoni Accademia and Bruno Canino
    "Jean-Baptiste Singelee: Fantaisies Concerts et Solos" (SATB Saxophone and Piano)
    Dynamic CDS-541
    (all Singelee)
    --Grand Duo Concertante
    etc.

    Loris Colmaor
    "Loris Colmaor/Leandro Camerotto" (Alto Saxophone and Piano)
    Lorely Production PH 00618
    --Chailleux: Andante et Allegro
    --Creston: Sonata
    --Bourrel: Sonate
    etc.

    Apologies if these have been mentioned before. Thanks!

    I will echo your comments about Kumoi. He visited IU a few weeks ago and premeired a new quartet by David Maslanka, and he was amazing. He taught a masterclass, and his ideas were really wonderful. I have ordered his CDs and look forward to hearing more of him.

    Just a correction to Jazfyrski's nice list.

    The CD "Sinfonia" (works of C.P.E. Bach) on the Cryston label is Masataka Hirano, not Kumoi. Great CD.

    Default Ooops!

    You're right, Angel! "Sinfonia" is by Masataka Hirano.

    I got so excited about the CD that I attributed it to the wrong artist. Boy, these Japanese saxophonists are really making their mark in the classical saxophone world these days. Thanks for the correction!

    BTW, is there another saxophone recording of Canteloube's "Chants d' Auvergne"? Anyone?

    Suggestion for this thread - if you list something a little off the beaten path (or very much off the beaten path), include a source if possible. Jazfyrski, looks like some very interesting CDs there but aside from the BIS label I wouldn't begin to know where to look for them.

    The Sinfonia CD by Hirano is absolutely wonderful.

    CDs of some of the Japanese artists are hard to find in the usual places. However, I found that the Japanese Amazon.com site, amazon.co.jp, allows you to set up an account with a US (or international) address. Not only that, in the upper right corner, there's a link that allows you to view the site in English, including your account info pages, order tracking, etc. I got the Sinfonia CD from there.

    One downside, as far as I can tell, is that you have to search for artists' names using Japanese characters!

    Here are direct links to the Hirano and Tochi CDs:

    How can you get hold of the Masato Kumoi CDs?

    Also, I don't know if anyone has mentioned this already, as I haven't had time to search all the way through this thread, but Arno Bornkamp said he should have a CD coming out later this year, including works with pianist and narrator (I think)! Also I think he said Aurelia Quartet will have a new CD.

    For Chitownjazz:

    Good suggestion about listing sources/vendors, as well the new CDs. I'll do that from now on.

    For:KenK:

    Thanks for your posts. Those are indeed my sources for many of the CDs listed. But I also have family in Japan who keep me informed and supplied with classical saxophone releases from there.

    Other notes:

    The Singelee CD is available from: www.crotchet.co.uk

    The Franco-Pallas CD from: www.arkivmusic.com

    The Colmaor CD from: www.loreley-boutique.fr

    I think that's it. Thanks.

    Tetraphonics Saxophone Quartet just came out with a CD on the Cybele label (www.cybele.de)

    CD - The Invitation - Saxophone Quartets of the 20th century

    Philip Glass: Concerto for saxophone quartet, Frank Reinshagen: The Invitation, Barbara Thompson: Saxophone Quartet No. 2 "From darkness into light", Zdenek Lukás: Rondo per 4 sassofoni, Johann Sebastian Bach: Fugue No. 20 in A minor à 4 voci BWV 865 (from The Well-tempered Piano Vol. I)

    Soprano - Steffen Hass
    Alto - Elmar Frey
    Tenor - Volker Ax
    Bari - Rich Mays

    Elmar personally handed me this CD while I was in Europe last week and I've been listening to it non-stop, particularly the Barbara Thompson Quartet. Really good stuff and I highly recommend this CD to everyone. This is such a great quartet that I've been waiting to listen to for a while now.

    Federico Mondelci new CD "Favorite Italian Movie Music". Works by Molinelli, Morricone, Rota et al. Constantine Orbelian conducting Moscow Chamber Orchestra. Delos label.

    I just received the new Delangle CD in the mail, and I think it's fantastic, though bordering on the fast mvmts being too fast, almost frantic. Mostly very beautiful playing from Claude, especially a stunning Ravel Pavane. The Singapore Symphony is extremely hot. Super aggressive in La Boumiano mvmt of Maurice, highly sensitive and full of color in Ravel, Tomasi.

    Recieved mine about a week ago as well. There are some truely beautiful moments in this recording. The musicality and sensitivity are superb, especially in the slower movts. Yet the highlight for me, was how fresh Claude's take was on these well known works. Definite food for thought in teaching these works and playing them yourself.
    Also, how good is the support of this man! That air stream is so rock solid. I particulalry enjoyed the first few phrases on the 2nd of the Ibert. it was well worth the wait.

    Yes Kenneth and Sugawa are indeed going to record a duet CD. Prof. Tse (in early May I believe) received word that he and Sugawa were awarded a grant to record. However, they are having a difficult time booking a place in Iowa to record, last I heard, they may be pushing the recording date until next summer.
