    This 3-movement composition was composed in 2007 and dedicated to Eugene Rousseau. Movements 2 and 3 were based on Gliere's Intermezzo and Tarantella, originally for Double Bass solo, composed in 1900. Significant reworking of the solo part was done to better fit the saxophone. A completely new movement was added (movement 1) based on Gliere's style. The concerto is scored for versions with orchestra or band accompaniment as well as the piano reduction listed here. Claude Delangle, Professor of Saxophone, Paris Conservatoire, says "I have played many times during the two last concert seasons David DeBoor Canfield’s saxophone work, Concerto after Gliere with huge success, not only among the audience, but also among saxophone colleagues attending. They immediately took note of David’s name for their future concert programs, a very good sign for his European recognition!"

    This is an exciting work and one of Canfield's most popular. Duration approximately 22 minutes.
