David DeBoor Canfield, born in Florida in 1950, is an unusual composer: as well as writing music in his own contemporary style, he also ventures back into history, generating works that the major figures of the past might have produced had they written for particular instruments. Here are three examples from what he calls his ‘After’ series: saxophone concertos in the styles of Glière and Tchaikovsky and a violin rhapsody that might have flowed from the pen of Gershwin.
