Some months ago I was talking with a saxophonist when he said: "It's a good thing for pianists - as you are - to have a large soloistic repertoire with orchestra; unfortunately saxophonists don't have. Why don't you orchestrate some pieces of our repertoire for sax and piano?" I got the idea and thought about it for a while; then, after a few weeks, I decided to orchestrate Paul Creston's Sonata op. 19 transforming it into a concerto for saxophone and orchestra. Having played this piece many times, I knew it very well and in my opinion it suited excellently to an orchestral version. In my work I've been faithful to what the author has written: I've not changed harmony, neither rhythm; I've only created a new "look" for this masterpiece of Paul Creston.

John Reinhardt, USA - March 5, 2010

...let me extend my thanks to you for this wonderful orchestration that makes Creston's Sonata able to be performed with this medium. Your work really opens up a whole new venue of performance opportunities for a crucial piece of saxophone really is well done...Congratulations!... ...the percussion is very tastefully done though; I especially enjoy the woodblocks... ...interestingly enough, there were some openly admitted, pre-performance skeptical who were very impressed post-performance, and really thought that the orchestration "worked."... ...all in all I really do like the orchestration... ...once again, thank you very much for your work...
