“As the Saxophone is commonly associated with the jazz style, classical music for the instrument had always been lacking. Therefore, when Paul Bonneau (1918-1995) composed his Two Caprices in the style of a Waltz for Alto Saxophone and Piano, it was well-received by performers of the genre. Bonneau's composition was highly versatile, ranging from over fifty film scores, operettas, songs and other pieces for Saxophone, including a concerto. The Two Caprices in the style of a Waltz, however, were particularly acclaimed for their use of advanced techniques. The works contains typically French characteristics including chromaticism and difficult technical passages. All these elements combined make for an enjoyable and challenging piece for saxophonists.&rdquo.
