    Amazing! I've been working on these myself every now and then and was waiting for someone to release something like this. It seems the caprices are arr. by him and not the ones in the Delangle series.

    Hemke's new CD "Simple Gifts" is out. Info at his website: http://www.fredericklhemke.com/home.htm

    There's a second one in the pipeline called "The American Saxophonist".

    If I'm reading his discography (scroll to bottom of page) correctly this is his first solo release in more than 20 years.

    Also interesting that one of his LPs in the 1970s was "The American Saxophone" and the new CD will be "The American Saxophonist". I thought he was French school.

The tone is a bit bright, but Hekkema moves from the lowest register to the highest altissimo with relative ease and lightning quickness, and the articulation is always light and rapid.

    Everyone should hear this.

    For those of you who have been having problems ordering directly from Mr. Hekkema, I just ordered mine from hmv(hk) http://www.hmv.com.hk/product/classical.asp?sku=631508 for $23 with shipping.

    I just got the Alliage Quartet's CD Una Voce Poco Fa: Opera Paraphrases for 4 Saxophones and Piano. The operas represented on this CD are Carmen (Bizet), Barber of Seville (Rossini), Tosca (Puccini), Porgy and Bess (Gershwin), and The Magic Flute (Mozart). This CD is absolutley stunning. The Mozart is just unbelievable. The quartet is led by Daniel Gauthier who is quickly becoming one of my favorite classical sax players. If you like opera the slightest little bit...GET THIS CD!!! If you hate opera...GET THIS CD...you'll still like it. It is available through amazon.com for a good price.

    Default Gauthier Rocks

    Even if you've never even heard of opera before and you have no intention of ever using the word in a sentence, GET THIS CD.

    I would put Gauthier near the top of my list of contemporary artists, regardless of instrument. This guy is a truly dynamic force, and I would love to see him perform.

    Mr. Hekkema signed up for paypal on 3/22 so that I could order this cd. He does only subscribe to the level that does not acept credit card funded transactions.

    I must say that he is a very gracious person to deal with and would highly recommend adding a copy of this disc to your library - no matter what source you choose for your purchase.

    I also enjoy the Andy Findon cd, and was happy to see it get a good review in the most recent volume of 'Saxophone Journal'.

    Thank you all for this thread and the favorite classical recording thread. Both have expanded my horizons....

    David Wright: Alto saxophone
    Steven Harlos: Piano

    • Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano - David Williams (dedicated to David Wright)
    • Sonatina for Alto Saxophone and Piano - Walter S. Hartley (dedicated to David Wright)

    • Lament - Chris Tilley (dedicated to David Wright)

    David Wright is a wonderful player. Last year, I was fortunate enough to substitute on soprano for Dr. Wright's Traverser Saxophone Quartet. He is a very sensitive and versatile musician.

    I'll be picking up that CD soon.

    Thanks for the tip, Jazfyrski. Just ordered mine.

    A tip from BKauth via email:

    Dear Friends,

    Here is the newly-released recording of USM's
    Sax-Chamber Orchestra, Parabolically Bach. If you or
    your students are interested in purchasing it, you may
    do so through the attached link (http://www.romeorecords.com/pages/RomeoRecords-7251.htm) to Romeo Records. It is a great recording, and a worthy addition to the
    growing body of saxophone recordings.

    Best wishes to all,
    Brian

    Just to speak for Angel, the story goes, which I was there for, Dwoz played Walter Hartley's Concerto for Alto Sax and Band with the Fredonia Wind Ensemble as a result of winning our concerto competition. Afterwords, there was a reception where Dr. Hartley told Dwoz that he played the piece better then Sinta did. (Obviously that is objective, but DWoz did however, rock the house)

    Sinta has a stlye of flashyness and bravado (in a good way) that we in Fredonia associated with a unique Sinata sound, hence "He out Sinta'd Sinata."

    If I left anything out, DWoz, please correct me.

    Noah definitely explained it better than I would.

    The whole 'out-Sinta'd' thing was a small joke that was shared with me by DWoz, Walter Hartley, and the Fredonia boys last summer in Louisville. I didn't take it too seriously until I heard DWoz perform part of the Albright Sonata very artistically a day or two after the comment.

    I didn't want DWoz5000 to think I was making fun of him, so I included "my very best regards".

    Hello all,
    New CD my Kenneth Tse: Pas de Toirs

    This CD is incredible. It is an outstanding representation of Saxophone, Bassoon, and Piano. This combination of instruments is really unique and yeilds some beautiful sounds and sonorities. Kenneth's playing has the tonal color and beauty, and the technical mastery that we have all come to expect from a player like him. Benjamin Coelho's Bassoon playing is wonderful as well. He has a wonderfully full sound, and impeccible intonation.

    The trio is obviously very comfortable with eachother, and it shows through the music. This CD is definately worth checking out! www.kenneth-tse.com
