Run, Sing, Fly – a programme of music for alto saxophone and piano

Sarah Markham presents her debut CD for the label. This collection of largely programmatic music for saxophone which covers an expanse of musical eras, genres, and countries. The saxophone and piano are required to dance, serenade, mourn, depict fluffy clouds on a summer day, beautiful countryside and birds, as well as “run, sing, fly”.

  • The saxophone depicts a bird running, singing, and flying in Takashi Yoshimatsu’s Fuzzy Bird Sonata.
  • Paule Maurice’s Tableau de Provence music gives us her insight to the countryside of the Provence region of France.
  • We hear the distinctive flavours of Spain, Russia, France, Hungary, and Paris in Pierre Max Dubois’s Pieces Caractéristiques En Forme de Suite.
  • Cirrus clouds and the Eurostar train feature in a new Sonata by James Rae, receiving its world premiere recording.
  • Richard Rodney Bennett’s Three Piece Suite cannot fail to charm with its light-hearted fun depiction of a melancholic samba, homage to Scott Joplin, and funk inspired fugal finale.
  •  A saxophone recital programme would not be complete without Debussy’s Syrinx, specially transcribed by composer and saxophonist Chris Jolly

Sarah Markham  alto saxophone Paul Turner  piano

“As a performing duo, Sarah Markham and Paul Turner are incredible… the true magic is the way these two musicians work together to present the music. Sarah’s saxophone combined with Paul Turner’s piano, is an outstanding musical experience for everyone to enjoy.”
PAUL WAGNER, SAXOPHONE JOURNAL

Markham skilfully combines the delicacy of the French style with the powerful vocality of the British.’
