Editorial Reviews

Seasons is saxophonist Michael Hester's ninth recording and second solo release (An American Patchwork was released in 1998). Seasons' carefully chosen program represents a cross section of classical styles and time periods, featuring music by composers from Bach and Handel to William Grant Still and Enrique Granados. Not just for saxophonists, Seasons will be a welcome addition to any classical music collection.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Saxophonist on July 14, 2002
Format: Audio CD
There are other recordings of the Desenclos and Bonneau pieces out there, but Hester's interpretations are worth listening to. The Desenclos is a piece where no two performers play it alike, and Hester brings yet another superb and flawless approach to a beautiful work. I also enjoyed the H. Benne Henton Caprices. I am not aware of any other recordings of these, and they are short, light pieces that I intend to include in my repertoire. Seasons is not a groundbreaking cd, but as Hester explains in the liner notes, it brings together music that he has enjoyed playing during the past 30 years. Hester's beautiful tone and musicality make this a cd worth purchasing.
