Guest Artist: Claude Delangle, saxophonist


BIZET | Jeux d’enfants, Op. 22
Fantasia, Op. 630
Concerto for Alto Saxophone in E-flat Major, Op. 109
Paris Eternel
Contradances, WoO 14
Symphony No. 31 in D Major, K. 297 (Paris)

French Saxophonist Claude Delangle returns with two major works for the instrument—the Villa-Lobos Fantasia and Glazunov Concerto for Alto Saxophone in E-flat. Claude’s fine playing in 2007 brought new meaning to the words “brilliant and breathtaking.” His sublime skill and creamy sound evoke gasps of delight from his audiences. Be prepared for encores! 

Also featured on the program is Bizet’s Jeux d’enfants, Op.22 (Children’s Games). Originally a set of twelve pieces for piano for four hands, he later orchestrated the piece into this delightful suite of five movements, which celebrates youth. Beethoven’s rarely heard Twelve Contradances, and Mozart’s lively Symphony No. 31 (Paris) promise an evening of delightful discovery.
