Marguerite Roesgen-Champion

Concerto No. 2 (download)

Roesgen-Champion's Concerto No. 2 for Alto Saxophone, Bassoon, and Harpsichord (or Piano) is unique in the chamber music literature. (Despite the work's title, efforts to locate the Concerto No. 1 have yielded no results.) The four-movement work explores a variety of moods. The first movement, with its preponderance of arpeggiated chords in the keyboard creates a mood of early Baroque music. The second consists of a dialogue between the two wind instruments while the third seems to be influenced by the Gymnopedies of Erik Satie. The final movement creates a mood of sinister tension with melodic passages in octaves in the saxophone and bassoon over a busy keyboard accompaniment.
