Saman Samadi

About this exposition

This exposition represents a collection of Saman Samadi's solo and chamber works for saxophone. The first four pieces were composed since the year 2015 during which the author explored various techniques to score timely structured improvisational compositions. That same year, these works were premiered by saxophonist Anthony Izzo, pianist Saman Samadi, and LX Saxophone Quartet in Brooklyn's Shapeshifter Lab as well as W10 Performing Arts Center. On the contrary, "Scheherazade", Saxophone Quartet No.2, composed in the Spring of 2017 and dedicated to Clémentine Scheherazade Samadi, was written through a precisely detailed fixed-notated score. This piece was commissioned and premiered by LX Saxophone Quartet at Lincoln Center NYC, on the day Scheherazade was born, the 22nd of June, 2017. On the 17th of July, 2017, the recording of this performance, and on the 7th of December 2018, an album consisting of the audio recordings of the compositions from 2015 have been published on digital music platforms.
