Sonata for Alto Saxophone [ASx-Pno]
David Maslanka

Sonata

for Alto Saxophone and Piano
32 min.   •   
1988

The sonata is in three large movements. The first is lyrical and reflective, with sudden energetic bursts. The song-like and soulful second movement is a broad soliloquy with its roots in the expressive madrigal style of the sixteenth century. The third is a large rondo that is at times fierce, mournful, playful, and turbulent, and at the end, ethereal.
