Anime' for Soprano Saxophone and Piano: Andrew Dahlke and Anne Breeden

This latest release from saxophonist Andrew Dahlke and Anne Breeden consists of beautiful, accessible music for soprano saxophone and piano.

Animé – full of life, energy, and beauty – seems an apt title for showcasing the soprano saxophone and the music presented here. Three of the works (Ravel, Poulenc, and Villa-Lobos) employ the term as the character of a movement.

Rogers’s title Lessons of the Sky comes from the essay The Star Thrower by Loren Eiseley. Here the sky represents that which is open, alive, and infinite.  

J. S. Bach’s Sixth Flute Sonata is a stunning example of clarity of expression and timeless beauty. The resultant simplicity is seemingly spun from the heavens above.

Ravel’s Sonatine, composed for solo piano, promotes elements of tenderness, care, and delicacy in a way which only music can communicate.  

Poulenc’s Sonata covers an extreme emotional range, beginning with the Élégie to Prokofieff, the sprightly yet sublimely beautiful Scherzo, and the placid final movement – Déploration.

The rhythmic freedom, space, and melodicism of Villa-Lobos’s Fantasia creates an “other-worldly” listening experience of excitement, mystery, and triumph!

Andrew Dahlke - J. S. Bach 6 Solo Cello Suites for Saxophone Volume 1

Andrew Dahlke - J. S. Bach 6 Solo Cello Suites for Saxophone - Volume 1

This first of it's kind recording features Andrew playing suites No. 6 (soprano saxophone), No. 2 (low A alto saxophone), and No. 3 (baritone saxophone). Andrew Dahlke’s recording of J. S. Bach’s famous six solo cello suites on saxophones is one of a very few in the world that includes all six suites, and the only one to his knowledge that records them on different saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone).

Andrew spent a number of years studying the suites and performing them prior to recording.  Andrew’s initial model for the suites was the recording by the Russian cellist, Mstislav Rostropovich. Andrew began by transcribing the recorded performances of Rostropovich in detail as a basis for his own interpretation.

The chance “discovery” of the suites by Pablo Casals, and the numerous and varied performances of the suites over time has elevated these magnificent works to an almost “cult-like” status and following.  The suites now stand as a pillar for a performer’s endurance and unique artistry.
