Wittgenstein & Twombly – Concerto for Saxophone (2017) version for Saxophone and Concert Band

Having grown up playing in concert bands, I am still thrilled by the massive sound this gathering of winds, brasses, and percussion offers. Having rewrite my Love Hurts a few years back and appreciated more rhythmic precision of the concert band compared to orchestra, I was happy for the opportunity to rewrite this concerto for saxophone, recently premiered by Marcus Weiss with the Basel Sinfonietta. The premiere performance of the version with concert band took place on July 15th, 2018 in Toledo, at the Festival Internacional de Música La Mancha with the Festival Concert Band, Sebastián Heras, conductor, and the soloist Pedro Pablo Cámara.
