Sue McKenzie and Ingrid Sawers, leading advocates of the rapidly growing repertory for soprano saxophone and piano, make their second Delphian outing with a survey of some of its recent British highlights. James MacMillan's poignant lyricism gives way to contained ecstasy, then increasingly unfettered vitality, in a pair of seminal works by Michael Nyman. In evocative miniature dramas by Sally Beamish and Judith Weir the instrument gives voice respectively to the half-human, half-spirit nature of Shakespeare's Caliban and to the life and death of a condemned Scottish bagpiper.

As Scotlandís leading saxophone and piano duo, McKenzie Sawers Duo have performed live on BBC Radio Scotland and toured widely throughout the UK, as well as being invited performers in Strasbourg at the World Saxophone Congress. Their repertoire encompasses jazz, classical, world and folk music, with a mission to take it to new and wider audiences.
