New compositions for saxophone with some arrangements of popular compositions.

Vanessa Sielert and Catherine Anderson formed Duality to commission and perform new works for saxophone and piano as well as to challenge the listener and the performer. This recording contains some of those commissions as well as arrangements of popular compositions that are treated in a new and interesting manner. Saxophonist Vanessa Sielert is on the faculty at the Lionel Hampton School of Music at the University of Idaho. She studied at the University of Idaho, Baylor University, and the University of Illinois. She has performed with a wide range of performing groups — jazz ensembles, orchestras, and chamber ensembles. Pianist Catherine Anderson, a former faculty member at the Lionel Hampton School of Music, is in demand as an independent collaborative artist throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Duality offers a number of compelling works as the duo explores the grey aareas between classical music, jazz, and popular music. Vanessa Sielert and Catherine Anderson both show that they are up to the task with musicality, virtuosity, and stylistic approaches that fit each situation. Overall, this is an enjoyable recording that brings us into a world where performers and composers defy conventional roles for a greater musical purpose…Through their musicality, technical ability, and willingness to seek new works by composers that know their unique skills, Duality has created a compelling recording that is worth repeated listenings.
