(Or, what are the alto’s names? I will do my best to provide the answers.)
Male alto, or “altro,” is the “middle” or “mid” alto in a major or minor scale (or is it if you are in the key of, say, A major), usually one of the “four main” alto’s, such as A, F, Eb, C or G. Male alto also refers to the upper alto of that “four main” alto.
The “middle” alto is more “sophisticated” than the “altro,” because he can sound like any other type of alto. And, by the way, male alto is, in fact, the upper class of the alto’s, whereas the altro’s are lower. For a more complete overview, please refer to the following:
Is an altro called “middle,” or “middle-altro”?
The term “altro” was originally created to describe the “middle” or “middle-altro,” but it has been used to refer to the more sophisticated alto’s as well. The term “middle-altro” was actually coined by the saxophone soloist Steve Tange, who had noticed that the major alto’s were all very similar but had some major difference in their altonics. This led to the term “middle-altro” becoming well-known.
A middle alto (or “upper-altro”) typically has more high notes on it, and is closer to a major-key scale in length from note to note. If you notice if an alto doesn’t appear on his fingering, it’s probably upper-altro.
Is an alto called “altro-altro?”
The name can refer to all alto types, or specific ones. Many saxophone virtuosos (especially the younger ones) have their own terminology for the terms, such as “A” and “F”, (the latter is often shortened to “AA”).
