The premiere of Charles Ruggiero's Concerto No. 4, for Two Soprano Saxophones and Orchestra, that had been scheduled for the October 27, 2017, MSU Symphony Orchestra concert, has been POSTPONED.
When a new date for the premiere has been set, it will be shown on this page.
Jonathan Nichol, Assistant Professor of Saxophone, University of Oklahoma, with pianist Michael Kirkendoll, Assistant Professor of piano, University of Kansas, gave the world premiere of TENOR ATTITUDES at the 2014 biennial national conference of the North American Saxophone Alliance. And in 2015, Nichol also gave the premiere of an expanded, concert-length version of TENOR ATTITUDES that adds five compositions for jazz combo as a response to, or set of variations on, the concert duo.
Earlier this year (2017), the brilliant studio recording of TENOR ATTITUDES (the concert duo) performed by Nichol and Kirkendoll was released on a Blue Griffin Recording compact disc also titled TENOR ATTITUDES.
