Sunday morning music

Let's try something both classical and modern this morning.

Alexander Glazunov was a very influential Russian composer, bridging the period between classical and modern music.  His Saxophone Concerto in E flat major was first performed in 1934, a fine example of combining the two eras.  This is a live performance from 2012, at the 7th annual Aeolus International Competition for Wind Instruments.  Soloist Bartek Duś and conductor Martin Fratz perform with the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra.
