Notes & Reviews:

Sospiro Records announces Rob Buckland's Gameshow, a new collection of saxophone concertos by contemporary composers Michael Ball, Andy Scott, Graham Fitkin, and Jacob ter Veldhuis. Buckland has commissioned new works for the saxophone throughout his professional career and three of the concertos on Gameshow were written for him. Scott, composer of 'Dark rain' said the album is, 'a stunning recording that has clarity, depth, emotion and impact. Effortless virtuosity from Rob & John.'
