“Sugawa’s playing is a marvel in its own right… he seems to have lungs the size of barrage balloons, and breath- and lip-control that produce melodic lines of infinite ductility – and which are moreover as secure at the extremes of his range as in its centre.”
- International Record Review

“Lovers of the saxophone must welcome a CD that offers two stalwart works in such fine interpretations, as well as significantly extending the recorded repertory.”
- Gramophone

“Yoshimatsu’s Albireo Mode and Toshiyuki Honda’s Concerto du vent are showpieces of Sugawa’s burnished sound… The sinuous athleticism of Ibert’s Concertino da camera and Lars-Erik Larsson’s stunning, bluesy concerto are worthier tests of Sugawa’s virtuosity.”
- Classic FM

One of Japan's most distinguished wind instrumentalists, Nobuya Sugawa presents an entire programme of saxophone concertos, expertly accompanied by Yutaka Sado and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to pieces by Jaques Ibert and Lars-Erik Larsson, Sugawa performs Takashi Yoshimatsu’s magical and jazzy Saxophone Concerto, Op. 93, "Albireo mode” with particular tenderness and flair, a work which—along with Toshiyuki Honda’s Concerto du vent, also on this release—is dedicated to the saxophonist himself.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
