Product Description

This work is the culmination of the works that Canfield has written for Kenneth Tse to date, in that it not only closes the cycle of four sonatas for each of the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, but also incorporates and amplifies elements from each of the other pieces: The quasi-atonality in portions of "Paradosis" becomes full-fledged in parts of the second movement of this sonata, just as the lyricism in the alto saxophone sonata and "Fisherman of the Fragrant Harbor" reaches full bloom in the tenor saxophone sonata's third movement, which utilizes key signatures throughout. Certain special effects from the earlier pieces, including inside-the-piano devices, and the performer playing into the piano to produce sympathetic resonances are to be found also, along with cadenzas in both of the last two movements. In short, this work is one of extremes and contrasts, and the virtuosity level for both soloist and pianist peaks above that of the other works. Composed in 2011 for and recorded by Kenneth Tse. Total duration 16.25 minutes.
