I paticulary enjoyed the villa lobos, the 3rd movement is taken at such a speed!
Hannah Church
I highly recommend this recording both to listeners new to the classical saxophone as well as listeners familiar with that repertoire.
George Tzanetakis
The concerto was inspired by the Greek myth of Dionysus and is written for a large orchestra.

I heard Mr. Kerkezos playing live with the London Philarmonic
Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall. I was impressed by his beautiful tone and mastery of the saxophone as well as his skillful arrangement of the Tango Suite for Saxophone and Orchestra by Astor Piazzolla. I found this CD by searching on the web for his name.
It consists of beautiful performances of pieces of the classical saxophone repertoire such as the Rhapsody for Saxophone by Debussy, the Glazunov concerto and Scaramouche by Milhaud. The last piece "Song of Dionyus" by contemporary greek composer, Ekaterini Karamessini showcases the versatility of Mr. Kerkezos as a saxophone performer. I highly recommend this recording both to listeners new to the classical saxophone as well as listeners familiar with that repertoire.

This CD is a huge improvement on the one released earlier (with Sohre Rabhari)- I can't remember the spelling. Anyway, this is a good CD. People familiar with other recordings of the Glazunov, Harle, Rousseau, Bornkamp etc, may find his tempi a bit unusual, but the tempo indications of the Glazunov are always a source for debate, I haven't checked them against a metronome and the score, but from what I remember, people always seem to play slightly faster than indicated.
Nonetheless, a good value buy- most things are so expensive, and hard to find (in New Zealand, anyway) All things considered, cost, quality, musical integrity etc, contribute to the high rating of this disc.

As a violinist, i stumbled across this cd by accident. But i am sure glad i did! I had no idea that there was so much fantastic repertoire for the saxophone and that there was such a magnificent performer of the instrument in Mr. Kerkezos. I paticulary enjoyed the villa lobos, the 3rd movement is taken at such a speed! In this he manages to make it sound so effortless and musical while playing obviously very technally difficult passages.
