Dominic Childs (saxophone)
Simon Callaghan (piano)


Rising star saxophonist Dominic Childs makes his solo recording debut with this exquisite programme of French works for the instrument.

Joined by the internationally renowned pianist Simon Callaghan, together they present an engaging recital of works either written by or inspired by women, and that were written with both piano and orchestral accompaniment in mind – the 1903 Rhapsodie by Claude Debussy sits alongside works by Fernande Decruck, Paule Maurice & François Borne.

'[...] Dominic Childs gives a most sensitive account of it with accompanist Simon Callaghan, bringing out the real Debussian textures [...] They are equally sympathetic to Decruck’s lovely Sonata [...] very well-made and lovingly rendered here'

Gramophone

'[...] a very welcome release consisting of fine performances of four ‘serious’ works which highlight the instrument'
Lark Reviews

'This is an imaginative, attractive and remarkably poetic recital throwing a side-long glance at French 20th century music and sometimes neglected aspect of the saxophone'
