“Born to an Italian father and a French mother; Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) divided his music studies between the Academia Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Conservatoire de Paris; where he was taught by Henri Büsser and Henri Rabaud. His chamber music compositions reveal a marked predilection for wind instruments; as reflected in Fantaisie pastorale for oboe and piano (1939) and New-Orléans for bass saxhorn and piano (1944). During his stay a few years earlier at the Villa Medici in Rome (1936); Bozza had written his Aria Pour Saxophone Alto Et Piano a free adaptation of the third movement of Johann Sebastian Bach s Organ Pastorale in F major BWV 590. This expansive and nostalgic melody; which unfolds over a regular meter; has become one of the most widely played SaxoEphone pieces in the world. Having enjoyed such success; Éditions Leduc has decided to supplement its republication with an audio version that will enable saxoEphonists to carry out full-scale practice.”
