Outlines In Blue - The Baritone Sax sketches the blues progression, whilst the remaining saxes sit on the top creating melody. Simple pentatonic riffs on the Baritone and Soprano sit neatly under the fingers. The piece makes for interesting fun playing for all the players, especially the Baritone. A good opportunity to get a feel for swing timing. Aimed at grade 5 and above. Meditation - A reflective piece, that requires controlled and sustained playing. It provides the opportunity to show how well these instruments blend. Written in a choral style, imitation and suspended harmonies create dynamic moments of tension and resolution. Aimed at grade 5 upwards, a challenging but rewarding piece for the concert platform or just for pleasure.
Saxophone Quartet - Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone
