Notes and Editorial Reviews

DEDICATION, a compilation of newly recorded works by composer Howard Quilling, features two sonatas for violin and piano, a suite for saxophone and wind orchestra, and a trio for violin, cello, and piano.

The album's centerpiece, the Suite for Alto Saxophone and Wind Orchestra, brings a sense of accomplishment and happiness to the composer when he speaks about it. Says Quilling, "It is one of my best and very favorite pieces. I wrote it in 1970, and I still keep coming back to it...after all this time I still think it's quite a good piece." The piece has five movements, which are contrasting. They are: Prelude, a march-like introduction; Pastoral, smooth and romantic; Scherzo, fast and lively; Song, a melody-driven
Read more diversion; and Finale, a brilliant, fast, energetic culmination. "There was no attempt to use related materials or to introduce programmatic elements," says Mr. Quilling.
