New Publications Now Available from American Composers

(April 2016)

HLNewPubs.jpg Select works by John Adams, Elliott Carter, and Michael Daugherty are now published for sale in new editions.

One of the most sought-after releases of the last couple years has just come off the presses: John Adams’ Saxophone Concerto in a version for solo alto saxophone and piano reduction. Originally written for alto saxophone and orchestra, the Saxophone Concerto made waves during its initial performances in the summer and fall of 2013. Since that time, the work has taken on a life of its own, having been recorded by David Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra with soloist Timothy McAllister on the Nonesuch label, and performed numerous times with many different orchestras for the past couple of years. Saxophonists from around the world have been waiting for a piano reduction of this work, and it has finally arrived.
