This recital will be exclusively dedicated to Antonin Servière’s Sonata for Alto Saxophone and piano, which was world premiered in July 2014 by Carlos Canhoto and Yan Mikirtumov.

This work represents the challenge of maintaining the principle of tension and relief of yhe classical sonata without making use of any tonal center. The work has several references from the classical saxophone repertory, both explicit and not so explicit, which the saxophonists can amuse themselves discovering.The composer wants to offer us, with this work, a music which is full of contrasts, in a true musical dramaturgy. A music which is full of content, full of energy and deeply directional.
