Voyages and Voyagers presents three of the Voyages for saxophone by the Australian composer Brian Howard alongside works by composers who have begun new lives in new countries: the French/Iranian composer Paul Mefano; Chilean/Australian composer Andrian Pertout; and the Russian/English composer Elena Firsova. From Pertout’s robust investigation of four note chords in Arithmós=Analogia=Armonia, to the broad expanses of Firsova’s Monologue, these contemplative miniatures display the diverse colours of the contemporary classical saxophone.
