What recordings would you guys recommend of Scaramouche (Milhaud) and Improvisation et Caprice (Bozza)? I prefer something that can be purchased via iTunes, but from the searching I've done so far, can't find any that really stand out there.

Thanks

On Scaramouche, are you looking for the orchestral or piano accompanied version?

I'll be performing with piano, so primarily the piano version, but I'd like to have a recording of both.

Scaramouche?

Pekka Savijoki, on the cd "the french saxophone". The most transparant version I ever heard. Don't know if it is on i-tunes.

Regarding the Savijoki version-
It can be purchased on iTunes, bought it a while back. Not a huge fan of his tone, but techinically very good.

I'd also recommend the Delangle version with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. Also available on iTunes, album titled "Under the Sign of the Sun".

Much thanks to both of you for the suggestions! That gives me one of each with piano and orchestra. :)(I really love the Delangle recording...as I do all of his others). Still looking for Bozza, any suggestions?

Bozza Improvisation and Caprice:
Jamal Rossi CD "Caprice"
Marcel Mule CD "Complimentary"

Milhaud Scaramouche:
Arno Bornkamp CD "Scaramouche"
Claude Delangle CD "Under the Sign of the Sun"
Daniel Gauthier CD "Spirito Latino"
Nobuya Sugawa CD "Fuzzy Bird Saxophone Recital"
James Umble CD "Dejeuner sur l'Herbe"
Gary Louie CD "Pastorale"

and many more. Milhaud is actually the most-recorded piece for saxophone. I think I may have somewhere between 40 and 50 different saxophonists playing this.

The only Bozza recording I know of is Bill Perconti on his CD "Duo One Point Five." My favorite Scaramouche recording is Joe Lulloff on Volume VII of "America's Tribute to Adolphe Sax."

Bozza: I'm pretty sure Victor Morosco (moroscosax.com I think) recorded it. There should be a recording on his website. There are also recordings of Mule playing it floating around the internet somewhere.

Need a CD? PM Steve P!

This Gary Louie CD is way out of print, and has been for a long time. One of the best saxo CDs, and it's totally unavailable with little to no chance of re-release. Beautiful playing.
