Had a nice time collaborating with soprano soloist, Samuel Phua and conductor, Adrian Chiang in the world Premiere of Dirge and Dance for Soprano and Baritone Saxophone and Orchestra composed by Elliot Teo:
It was interesting pitting the baritone saxophone against its higher counterpart, the soprano saxophone. I especially loved playing lines in tandem with the cellos and double bass! People on the street always admire the skills of saxophone in conversation, ‘wow you must have great lungs’ – this is especially true with playing this piece! It is a true test of control playing strong and long lines on a baritone saxophone! Thankyou to Elliot for writing this beautiful piece of music for the instrument!
