5.0 out of 5 stars Genius John Harle 10 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
John Harle brings his outstanding musicianship to another batch of saxophone concerti (he has also released a disc of the Bryars, Nyman and Westbrook concerti).

I was already familiar with the Torke concerto from another disc that I bought directly from the composer. It's a delightful and playful piece in which the sax leads and the orchestra follows.

Bennett's piece demonstrates the way in which he has straddled classical and jazz genres over the years and, unlike the other two, is for tenor sax.

But the real gem on here is the Myers concerto. As a quondam guitarist I always associated him with "Cavatina", a piece from the early 1970s that later became famous due to its use in "The Deer Hunter"; the only other music of his I knew was his soundtrack to "The Martian Chronicles"! This sax concerto is wonderful: it showcases the instrument (and Harle's technique) brilliantly, but the orchestra is no mere backdrop; there are some really interesting things going on there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Performance of 3 great works 10 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To be brief, this is a fabulous recording of three interesting saxophone concertos. Interesting, because not one of the three are performed on alto sax. The one I like the best is the Torke concerto (for soprano). It's a fabulous piece that Harle does a great job on. It's worth buying the cd for!
