Saxophonist Timothy McAllister returns to St. Louis performing John Adams’ new Saxophone Concerto with the STL Symphony. Be a part of history as the two weekend performances of the concerto will be recorded for future release on Nonesuch Records.
“John Adams' saxophone concerto is written for classical saxophonist Timothy McAllister. He gave an astonishing performance. Adams has thrown down the gauntlet with a solo line which demands speed, flexibility, musicality and, above all, stamina to keep going with barely a bar's rest. McAllister delivered, punching out the "nervous bebop" sound with manic intensity, like a Charlie Parker or Stan Getz solo sustained across 30 minutes." (The Sydney Morning Herald)
