Notes & Reviews:

"Sugawa is unfazed by the work's difficulties, and the rhapsodic opening movement, which seems to refer back to Debussy's Indonesian-inspired Impressionism, is an absolutely gorgeous tour de force. One could continue to list the strong points of this disc, but suffice it to say that it crosses into new realms while maintaining an assured mastery - and that the modest reputation of the genre of classical music for saxophone continues herewith to grow." -All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine
Lovers of the saxophone must welcome a CD that offers two stalwart works in such fine interpretations, as well as significantly extending the recorded repertory.
