Project Description

Composer’s Note

Escapade – Concerto for Saxophone (soprano & alto) and Band was composed at the invitation of my friend Jérôme Laran for world premiere performance in 2016.

Comprising three movements, the concerto expresses an energised mood from the outset, with soloist and band actively engaging in rhythmic and fanfaric gestures.

The soloist performs on alto saxophone for the duration of the first and third movements.

In the second movement, which takes the form of an extended rondo, the soloist’s soprano saxophone comes to the fore.

I warmly thank Jérôme Laran, L’orchestra d’harmonie H2O, and conductor Marcel Bourgeois for giving the world premiere performance of the work at La Grande Halle, Rue du Somport, 31240 L’Union, France.

Matthew Orlovich,
Composer.
