Henri Tomasi: Konsertto saksofonille ja orkesterille
Sergei Prokofjev: Sinfonia nro 5

Despite the popularity of Adolphe Sax’s most famous invention, the saxophone remains a rarity in symphony concerts – except today. The distinctive sound of the alto saxophone comes into its own in both Claude Debussy’s rhapsody and Henri Tomasi’s concerto – especially when the phenomenal Vincent David shows his best.
