Composed for woodwind artist Gary Foster, the “Suite for Solo Flute, Clarinet and Alto Sax” is a perfect concert showpiece for the multiple woodwind instrumentalist. The opening allegro features flute, demonstrating both technical prowess as well as a jazz-influenced lyrical theme. A return to the allegro is followed by a cadenza, then a switch to clarinet for a haunting and beautiful Lento, and a showy waltz. Concluding on alto saxophone, the soloist again demonstrates great technique as well a lyrical playing. A demanding but extraordinarily effective solo work!
