Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
I've accompanied a lot of the 20th-Century saxophone repertory, and I'm surprised that I've never heard any of Constantinides's sax music from behind the stage door at least (Legend II is for alto sax and percussion; Celestial Musings and Transformations are unaccompanied). Legend II never lost my attention once - Constantinides writes "cool and mysterious" very well, especially here. The percussion is used sparingly. Celestial Musings is the most tonally conservative. Transformations, a four movement suite, and swings. Suite for a Young Man is the piece the piano concerto in the other review is based on; it comes across better as a concerto, and Mr Gurt, at ease and confident in his other performances.
