THE SAXOPHONE AND THE ORGAN TOGETHER
The saxophone’s incredible carrying power makes it an ideal wind instrument partner for the organ. Organist Christopher Dawes explains, “When performing with the saxophone I feel I can fully exploit the tonal resources of the organ....” Further, the saxophone’s single resonating reed and conical shape conform to the characteristics of the organ’s reed family of pipes. This physical and acoustic relationship creates wonderful blending possibilities.
THE COMPOSER
Denis Bédard has written more than sixty works, including chamber music, orchestral and choral music and many works for organ. He has received commissions from Radio-Canada, the CBC, the Quebec Symphony Orchestra and various professional musicians in Canada, Great Britain and the U.S.A. Many of his works have been performed internationally (U.S.A., France, England, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Austria, Sweden, Czech Republic, South Africa, Hong Kong, Japan), particularly at international organ and saxophone conventions; many have been published and recorded on CD. His Concerto for organ and orchestra was premiered in July 2000 at the FQAO-RCCO joint Convention in Quebec City.
