Notes & Reviews:

Javier Oviedo explains that "My interest with French repertoire began while a student at The University of Texas at Austin. My studies introduced me to the then-peculiar sonorities and lush, quite modern harmonies of the composers of France, especially those from the turn of the 20th century... Jean-Pierre Schmitt and I discovered that works commissioned for saxophone by Madame Elise Hall (who was a composer and saxophonist) were left to the New England Conservatory. A trip there uncovered musical gems of the French repertoire by composers almost forgotten by the public." This recording reacquaints audiences with the great spectrum of color and expression of the saxophone.
