Anime' for Soprano Saxophone and Piano: Andrew Dahlke and Anne Breeden
This latest release from saxophonist Andrew Dahlke and Anne Breeden consists of beautiful, accessible music for soprano saxophone and piano.
Animé – full of life, energy, and beauty – seems an apt title for showcasing the soprano saxophone and the music presented here. Three of the works (Ravel, Poulenc, and Villa-Lobos) employ the term as the character of a movement.
Rogers’s title Lessons of the Sky comes from the essay The Star Thrower by Loren Eiseley. Here the sky represents that which is open, alive, and infinite.
J. S. Bach’s Sixth Flute Sonata is a stunning example of clarity of expression and timeless beauty. The resultant simplicity is seemingly spun from the heavens above.
Ravel’s Sonatine, composed for solo piano, promotes elements of tenderness, care, and delicacy in a way which only music can communicate.
Poulenc’s Sonata covers an extreme emotional range, beginning with the Élégie to Prokofieff, the sprightly yet sublimely beautiful Scherzo, and the placid final movement – Déploration.
The rhythmic freedom, space, and melodicism of Villa-Lobos’s Fantasia creates an “other-worldly” listening experience of excitement, mystery, and triumph!
