Aria by Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) is a lyrical piece written in 1936 for advanced Alto Saxophone players. Technically and musically challenging, being able to master vibrato and control your instrument well will be greatly beneficial to effective playing of this piece.

Dedicated to the famous French Saxophonist Marcel Mule, Aria required from the player a good mastery of breathing as there are few rests and this also suggests that the intonation should be applied carefully as well.
A relaxed piece that's really popular among players, this piece can remind of the style of J. S. Bach and is thoroughly enjoyable.

Eugène Bozza won different prizes at the Conservatoire de Paris such as the First Prizes for the Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. He also composed several operas, chamber works and ballets among others.
