French composer; Paul Dukas (1865-1935) is best known for his orchestral piece; The Sorcerer's Apprentice. However; his catalogue represents many other significant works by the composer; including Alla Gitana for alto saxophone and piano. Composed in 1909; Alla Gitana was originally a selection of vocal studies. However; Marcel Mule's transcription for alto saxophone has made this delightful work more accessible. Dukas reflects the French romantic style in Alla Gitana through uses of flourishing semiquavers; lyrical melodies and chromaticism. For all aspiring; advanced saxophonists; Dukas' Alla Gitana is an exquisite addition to the repertoire.
