Just humbly asking for any info on the Aria by Bozza for program notes.

This is what I already have:

-The Aria was written in 1936, for the celebrated saxophonist Marcel Mule.

-Due to its popularity it has been transposed for trumpet and clarinet.

-It's based upon the Manuel for the Fantasy in F of J.S. Bach

I have yet to check the groves, (and I will check it), but I'm sure there're some unique insights floating around this forum.

Oh, and I have enough info on Bozza himself.

I feel bad nobody posted on your thread
Here's something straight from

4 Aria (after the Manual for the Fantasy in F of J.S. Bach) (1936) Eugène Bozza (1905-1991)
Speaking of Marcel Mule, the Aria (after the Manuel for the Fantasy in F of J.S. Bach) was prepared for him by Eugene Bozza, a composer, conductor, and teacher whose list of accomplishments included conducting the orchestra of the Opera Comique in Paris and heading the Conservatoire in Valenciennes. Bozza's music was strong in fluent melody, elegance of structure, and reflected his keen sense for instrumental capabilities. In the lovely Bach aria, Bozza had the right source material to rouse his natural compositional instincts.
