These songs are extremely well-done however I would definately like to hear my favorite sax piece that Otis Murphy preforms superbly - Fantasia for Alto Saxophone

Excellent classical saxophone recital album

iTunes seems to have difficulty properly classifying classical saxophone collections. This album is not "world music," whatever exactly that may be, by any stretch of the imagination. Otis Murphy is a classical saxophonist; Haruko Murphy, his wife, is a classical pianist. One would think the presence of composer credits for Bizet and Saint-Saëns would offer a clue. In any event, "Fantasy" is a top-notch performance. Mr. Murphy's tone on the alto saxophone is as beautiful as any I've ever heard, and his technique is wondrous. Haruko Murphy is a gifted player as well. About the only criticism I can muster is that I wish the album hadn't begun with two transcriptions in a row, which may tend to diminish the significance of the original works for saxophone that follow. I endorse the idea of presenting a balanced recital program, and for saxophonists that often means including transcriptions, but both the Tomasi and the Bozza are important saxophone works, and the heart of this album is actually the Maslanka Sonata. It's a compelling composition, played here with consummate skill and focus.
