Russian composer Edison Denisov (1929-1996) was a controversial composer of the nonconformist division of Soviet music. He studied at the Moscow Conservatory and his compositions remain popular to this day, Two Pieces for Alto Saxophone and Piano being no exception. Published in 1978, a typical performance lasts about 5 minutes. The work makes use of extended techniques, including quarter and three-quarter tones, variations in ornamentation, complex rhythms, large intervals, differing articulation and exploitation of the ensemble, amongst other aspects. For all advanced saxophonists seeking modern, alternative and exciting repertoire, Denisov's Two Pieces is essential.
