Picture of Sheet music for alto saxophone and orchestra + alto saxophone and piano reduction by Nikolai Kapustin (miniature score)

Nikolai Kapustin's 1987 Concerto for Alto Saxophone Op. 50 is presented here in miniature score, an ideal study format for this concerto.

This jazz concerto for alto sax opens with slow, rhapsodic writing reminiscent of Rachmaninov, perhaps tinged with a little Gershwin here and there. A few minutes in and the sound world starts to change: piano syncopations under the solo line drive the rhythm and tempo forward, with jazz band instrumentation joining the symphony orchestra. The slower and reflective mood returns briefly before a thrillingly noisy big-band section brings the concerto to a close.
