Obras y estudios que debes conocer si vas a participar en un concurso de saxofón

Hemos recopilado el repertorio requerido para cada uno de los principales concursos en sus últimas ediciones: LONDEIX COMPETITION, CONCURSO ADOLPHE SAX DE DINANT, JOSIP NOCHTA DE CROACIA Y NOVA GORICA DE ESLOVENIA.

Para mí, la sorpresa más positiva es encontrar Chymisch del compositor catalán Hector PARRA, para saxofón barítono y electrónica en la Jean Marie Londeix Competition.
