Hi,

Anyone aware of a CD with the Glazunov concerto done on Sax and Piano?

I can only find the original strings version. As well as being instructive listening for my accompanist, I think it actually sounds really good on Piano and would be nice to hear a professional rendition.

thanks, Jim

Hello, Woodshedfred

I can list two saxophone and piano recordings of the Glazunov. One is by Lynn Klock and is on his CD, "Aria", on the Open Loop label and available from Dorn Pulications:

The second is also, coincidentally, from Dorn. It is a master class CD lesson of the Glazunov by Steven Mauk, and among the tracks is the complete concerto by saxophone and piano. You can find this in the March/April 1996 issue (Volume 20, No. 5) of "The Saxophone Journal":

I can also recommend a seemingly unlikely combination: alto saxophone and organ. Check out Dieter Pätzold's CD, "Spectaculars for Saxophone and Pipe Organ". It's a 1997 CD from Natter Records (PP 097008), although it may now be out-of-print.

Finally, German saxophonist Manfred Wordtmann also has a saxophone and organ reading:

I don't have this recording yet, so I obviously don't have an opinion on Mr. Wordtmann's interpretation. I can say that I have several of his other recordings that I like very much.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
