Gabriel Grovlez (1879-1944) studied under Gabriel Fauré at the Paris Conservatoire. His compositions proved to be extremely versatile, from Operas and Ballets to solo works. Grovlez 's Sarabande et Allegro is a sublime addition to the Alto Saxophone repertoire. Many of the composer's works show neo-classical features, which is also the case in Sarabande et Allegro , where the texture is predominantly melody-dominated homophony, perfect cadences are frequently heard, and modulations to related keys occur. Grovlez 's F minor Sarabande is in a steady, triple meter, superbly contrasted by the fast Allegro , composed in the relative major. All these features make for a thoroughly enjoyable and delightful performance!
