Works For Saxophone: Boismortier; Stamitz; Vieuxtemps
The saxophone was not invented until the middle of the 19th century. For the older music, Tully therefore quite inevitably had to fall back on repertoire for other instruments. Whether Boismoitier, Stamitz or Quantz, the versatility that Tully displays with his instrument here quickly makes one forget the original sound of oboe, flute or violin.
In addition, there is an unparalleled art of phrasing that reveals a deep understanding of older music. The change from soprano to alto saxophone does the rest to let the works of Vieuxtemps and Reger shine in the most beautiful light.
The pieces by Kazuo Fukushima, Kalevi Aho and Thierry Escaich round off a programme that is hard to beat for esprit. The recording technique, finely tuned to the historic concert hall, does the rest to create an all-round fascinating sound experience in the literal sense of the word.
