Nobuya Sugawa, small of stature but a giant of classical saxophone, has released yet another top quality CD. It is wonderful to have two new works added to the repertoire, and equally wonderful to have another version of the concerto by Lars-Erik Larsson. The filler in this case is yet another version of Ibert's Concertino da Camera.
Anyone who is interested in the saxophone used as originally intended will be rapt with this disc. New music, old music, exceptionally well performed. Many purchasing this CD will already have ample versions of the Ibert, but to have Sugawa's Larsson to hear next to those of Kenneth Tse and John Edward Kelly is a real treat.
