Sonatine Maurice Ravel. (1875-1937)
It includes three movements, I. Modéré, II. Mouvement de menuet, III. Animé. Ravel wrote in his autobiography that he wrote the Sonatine after his piano suite Miroirs, it seems to have been written between 1903 and 1905. Ravel most likely referred to the dates he finished both of the works. Ravel did not compose for saxophone so in this project, the arrangement by David Walter will be included.

Sonata Opus. 19 Paul Creston. (1906-1985)
Opus 19, Sonata for alto saxophone and piano composed by Paul Creston in 1939 is one of the most frequently played works that features a saxophone and piano combination. Creston wrote this piece to dedicate a fellow saxophonist—Cecil Leeson. Leeson in his own right is one of the most important American saxophonist and Creston had accompanied him in the 1930s. This sonata is one of the most popular pieces for saxophonists who appreciate Creston’s energy, variety, and musical interests that span across multiple styles. Compared to other saxophoists of the period such as: Glazounov, Heiden, and Ibert, Creston’s work is a breath of fresh air and stands out as a unique musical experience.

Sonata William Albright (1944-1988)
William Albright’s Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano, composed in 1984, has become one of the most frequently performed pieces in the saxophone repertoire. It is a work that contains diverse composition style which is equally comfortable with diverse compositional styles such as: be bop, free atonality, and minimalism. The work was composed for a consortium of three saxophone and piano duos: Donald Sinta and Ellen Weckler; Laura Hunter and Brian Connelly; and Joseph Wytko and Walter Cosand.
