Alla, Thierry: Discoidal for Solo Tenor Saxophone

by Thierry Alla. Discoïdal is a new unaccompanied work for solo tenor saxophone – duration approximately 6 minutes. Commissioned for World Saxophone Congress XVI by Jeffrey E. Vickers, this highly virtuosic solo exhibits an intensity rarely found for tenor saxophone.

Thierry Alla is a leader in spectral music in France, and his specialty is on exhibit in Discoïdal. The entire work is to be performed while circular breathing. A highly chromatic work, full of tone-color changes. Extended techniques include altissimo, bisbigliandi, slap tonguing, and breath sounds.
