Inspired by the command and structure of two Henri Matisse paintings under the name “The Music Lesson”, this powerful work for alto saxophone and band will become a staple of the repertoire. From the strict structure of the opening piano statement to the classically influenced melodic interplay with the saxophone, the piece moves through a flowing musical environment highlighted by a virtuosic cadenza. The recapitulation of the initial melodic line completes our music lesson and provides a strong conclusion to “Three Conversations With Matisse”, a suite for alto saxophone and band.
