The Alto Saxophone Upgrade to Full Library from the Vienna Symphonic Library provides additional articulations and samples for the Vienna Alto Saxophone Standard Library (required). The classical Swing big-band ensemble includes 5 saxophones: 2 Altos, 2 Tenors and 1 Baritone. The Alto saxophone is very versatile and apart from taking the lead voice in big band scores is also a common solo instrument. The Alto saxophone is a transposing instrument in Eb, sounding a major 6th lower than it is notated. It became famous especially through musicians like Ornette Coleman and Charlie Parker.
The musician for all the instruments, Robert Bernhard, plays in illustrious circles. His experience in orchestral music is as profound as his improvisations in jazz, funk and blues. He has captured all the nuances of the Selmer Mark VI series instruments (reissues of the famous vintage saxes of the Sixties) – from sensitive to aggressive, from whispering to screaming, exploiting the full dynamic range of these instruments.
