Paulsson´s Aho CD ​receives highest possible score: 10/10/10

Paulsson´s Aho CD receives highest possible score: 10/10/10
“In 2014-15 Aho wrote a concerto for soprano saxophone and chamber orchestra for Swedish saxophonist Anders Paulsson, who recently played the posthumous premiere of the soprano saxophone version of Anders Eliasson’s Grand Third Symphony. This concerto shines with intense exploration of structurally and atmospherically strong contrasting episodes. It begins with an expressive solo singing accompanied by atmospheric sound in an oriental-like manner, including micro-intervals and glissandi coloring, and then turns into a wild Presto. This is followed by an introspective Largo of ‘Misterioso’ character and a turbulent-bizarre, even polytonal humorous finale, which ends in an epilogue, which draws the bow back to the beginning. Anders Paulsson is as flawless as the Rovaniemi Lapland Chamber Orchestra under its longtime director John Storgårds.”

A great new concerto for soprano saxophone and chamber orchestra by Kalevi Aho:

The work is devoted to Anders Paulsson, whose delicate, ECM-style interpretation style has guided the concerto.
Paulsson is loaded with all the necessary intensity and he carries the melodies gloriously.
He also realizes multiplayer features chordically and naturally. It is probably thanks also to Aho, who is always familiar with the solo instruments.
The role of the Chamber Orchestra in the concerto
is to create mysterious shades of watercolors and to engage in dialogue with bright secco solos, and the Lapland Chamber Orchestra does really well.”

“Anders Paulsson has developed Soprano Saxophone playing to an unprecedented, sensational top level!”

C’est comme toujours impeccable, et tu entretiens la poésie de cette belle œuvre de la première à la dernière note. Oui ! C’est superbe d’intelligence musicale, de compréhension, de maîtrise de jeu, de beauté de son.

Standing ovations on US tour & hope for our future.

My concerts with Andrew Canning in Miami and Texas received standing ovations from cheering crowds, as did my performance in Dallas at the 8th Annual Festival of Hymns & Spirituals.

Many listeners were moved to tears by the music saying it was the most powerful concert experience in their life.

This is a special time in America after the heartwarming election of Barack Obama as the next US President. I have read his books Audacity of Hope and Dreams from my Father and have listened to many of his speeches and have been moved by the power of his vision and compassion for all beings.

To share his vision as citizens of the world is a truly uplifting experience and gives hope to all of us.

Love,

Anders
