Sax Scorchers Study Competition

We're very pleased and proud to announce that Stephen Davies is the winner of our competition, with his sizzling, virtuosic study, Saxtetics. It's challenging, exhilarating and fun, and it also provides serious saxophonists something meaty to get their teeth into. Congratulations Steve!

Steve's study will be published as the final and triumphant title in our forthcoming study album, Sax Scorchers, '20 Hot Studies for Saxophone', and his composer biog will be posted on our composers page, along with all of our existing contributors.

However, we were so impressed with the overall standard of entries (and this is not just the standard competition cliché), that we couldn't resist including three more entries in the album. These are Allan Bullard's Sax Roaster, John Ross' Sax Scorcher and Gabriel Santecchia's Salón de Destrabe. Many congratulations to these composers also, for imaginative, well-crafted pieces.
