Saxophone

Dinner Party

By Keyna Wilkins

Regular price $34.00 Sale

Saxophone Orchestra, c.4'30.  Level of difficulty - 7th Grade and above.

In this piece the composer has tried to explore the harmonic possibilities of such homogenous sounding ensemble by using the analogy of a dinner party in which the guests begin to have a polite conversation, which descends into argument in which they are all shouting at once.  By the time they leave, however, they have found resolution. Musically the motifs are developed in an intuitive free-flowing manner, centering around G Minor.
Audio - Sydney Conservatorium Sax Orchestra (October 2012)
Composed 2012

Hotel Quebec Tango

By Linda Dalgliesh

Regular price $16.00 Sale

For saxophone quartet, c.2'52

This piece was inspired by an essay in the 1939 autobiography "Wind, Sand and Stars" of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. He recalls the miraculous survival of a fellow pilot, Henri Guillaumet, who disappeared while flying the mail route across the Andes and was given up for dead. Guillaumet had been caught in a high altitude snowstorm and forced to land in a remote crater. Hotel, Quebec and Tango are part of the phonetic alphabet (Alfa Bravo Charlie) used internationally by pilots. I am almost certain that Guillaumet's biplane would have had a call sign, and I like to imagine it contained the letters HQT.

Lazy Dog Blues

By Linda Dalgliesh

Regular price $16.00 Sale

For saxophone quartet - A (solo) A (solo) TB,  c.3'55 

"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." I have been imagining this poor maligned dog since my childhood typing lessons. Why has she been described as lazy? Is she old and arthritic? Or is she a young working dog at the end of a long day? Has she been rounding up sheep in the hot sun? In either case, doesn't she now deserve to walk slowly onto a cool verandah and rest in the shade, without the indignity of a rude fox leaping over her?
