Having won many prizes at the Paris Conservatoire during the 1920s-1930s, Eugène Bozza went on to conduct the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique and to become Head of the Conservatoire in Valenciennes. As a major figure on the classical music frontline, Bozza's compositions were well-received by audiences, Improvisation and Caprice for solo saxophone being no exception. This Bozza piece for saxophone is challenging and frequently appears in conservatoire audition syllabuses. As music educationalist, Paul Griffiths has written of Bozza's compositions, “his works reveal melodic fluency, elegance of structure and a consistenly sensitive concern of instrumental capabilities.”
