New Sonata by Yutaka Osaka are those not in the world of saxophone until now. Complete fusion of romantic style and modern techniques I seen. High notes that more than a “ballad” of Frank Martin is incorporated into the romanticism. It’s very difficult sonata, but have not yet seen one person that did not praised this sonata.
