With unique interpretations from soloists and instrumental flourishes, saxophonist Paul Cohen revives original works for saxophone that remained unknown for decades. On HEARD AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME, Cohen is joined by the Eastern Wind Symphony under Todd Nichols and an impressive roster of soloists to breathe fresh life into the centuries-spanning collection. The original 1949 version of Dahl’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone, long-lost manuscripts of works by Loeffler, Roesgen-Champion’s mid-century impressionism, and Steve Cohen’s contemporary Trio not only reveals a previously unknown depth of saxophone repertoire, but also showcases the instrument’s prowess at tackling a multitude of musical styles.
