This new saxophone concerto is dedicated to Scottish classical saxophonist Carole Sutherland. Packed with humour, peril and tragedy, the work reflects Carole’s sparkling, mischievous personality, in a pool of optimism to rival that of Dr Pangloss!
The sinister first movement is a tale of crazy optimism versus harsh realism. It would be easy to think that, by the end of this movement, the cheerful, quirky sax soloist has lost that battle, but the war continues…
The slow second movement is a beautiful song of regret in which the saxophonist is given the opportunity to wallow deliciously in each and every ounce of his disappointment.
The concerto concludes with a somewhat neo-classical finale, loosely in rondo form, with an occasional jazz flavour. Despite the persistent appearance of a few dark clouds, this last movement is basically a study in happiness, optimism and good humour.
Carole’s love of playing her saxophone has inspired me to fill her concerto with passion, fun and lots of really good tunes. This concerto is all about pleasure - for musicians and audience alike. Enjoy!
