Notes and Editorial Reviews

An exciting new disc from one of the UK’s leading exponents of contemporary saxophone.

Welsh performer Lara James commissioned a group of well-known and emerging UK composers to build this programme of contemporary works for saxophone, string quartet and jazz trio, starting with the simple brief of combining jazz concepts, sounds and harmonies with classical forms and structures. The result is a beguiling disc of premiere performances that showcases the talents of the performers and composers alike.

This is Signum’s second disc with Lara James, following 2009’s ‘Façade’ (SIGCD158) – a disc of contemporary saxophone works for classical trio and orchestra:
