S147: Prelude, Cadence et Finale for Alto Saxophone and Piano by Alfred Desenclos. Leduc, 1956, SS, 15 + 6 pages. Dedicated to Marcel Mule and a contest piece at the National Conservatory. A wonderful composition from Desenclos (1912-1971) who wrote very little music because he thought his music wasn't good enough. As Mule wrote, this piece proves the contrary. It opens with the Prelude which is dark and jazz influenced. The Cadence is built primarily on rapid arpeggios and is followed by a transitional piano section leading into the Finale which begins rapidly but alternates between sections similar to the beginning before accelerating again to the conclusion. The piano part is very important and requires a skilled player. Advanced level. This piece is required for the preliminary round of the North American Saxophone Alliance 2012 Classical Saxophone Competition.

S607: Concerto in E-flat for Alto Saxophone and String Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Alexander Glazunov (Glazounov) edited by Regina Back and Douglas Woodfull-Harris with an urtext solo part and a solo part prepared by Carina Raschèr, piano reduction by Martin Schelhaas. Baerenreiter (BA 8732a), 2010, SS, 22 + 9 (+ 9) pages. The Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra is Alexander Glazunov’s last work. Since its first performance in 1934 it has become part of the standard saxophone repertoire. The sole surviving autograph manuscript is the hand-written dedication score given by Glazunov to Sigurd Raschèr. This score contains the original version of the work without the alterations which were made in the proofs to the orchestral score as well as the full version of the composer's cadenza which was later shortened. The autograph manuscript also contains some performance markings by Raschèr. The correspondence between Raschèr and Glazunov documents the composer's thoughts on the work and his recommendations about the size of the accompanying string orchestra. Evidence from this correspondence has been integrated into this edition. This first scholarly-critical edition of a work by Glazunov contains an informative introduction on German and English with commentaries about the history of its composition, facsimiles and a critical commentary. The solo parts (urtext and parts prepared by Carina Raschèr) include both the complete and the shortened version of the cadenza as well as a cadenza by Raschèr. We can order the score ($29.95) and the matching string parts ($5.95 each).

S883: Ayres (based on songs by John Dowland) for Soprano Saxophone and Piano by Katherine Hoover. Papagena Press, 2011, SS, 16 + 4 pages. After she heard the soprano saxophone played in a cathedral and was struck by its beautiful vocal quality, Katherine Hoover chose to arrange three Elizabethan lute songs by English Renaissance composer John Dowland. From the composer: “I have treated [these songs] in somewhat varying ways; counterpoint in the first, some variations in the second, and rhythmic play in the last, always being informed by the original song and/or words. These songs were commonly called Airs, or ‘Ayres,’ in the spelling of the time.” The songs are “Can She Excuse My Wrongs,” “Weep No More Sad Fountains,” and “Fine Knacks for Ladies.” The main challenge is the mixed meter in all pieces. The last note is an altissimo G. College level players who are comfortable with the frequent meter changes will enjoy these. Click on the cover image to view the first page of the score.

The composer wrote, "I drew inspiration for the form of the first movement from the poetic device of terza rima (or terzina) which allows the music to both move on and return in a 'rhyming' fashion. The second movement I called Arie (songs) which is simply all it is. And the Finale is a lively, fast Rondo."  An advanced level piece.

S636: Nightsong for Alto Saxophone and Piano by Allen Johnson. G. Schirmer, 1996, SS, 4 + 2 pages. A very pleasant composition. Saxophonist Kenneth Radnofsky (CD listed below) writes in his liner notes, "Composer Allen Johnson heals from Knoxville, Tennessee, and while his 'Nightsong' in many respects resembles Samuel Barber's own famous composition 'Knoxville Summer 1915,' it has a cosmopolitan influence evoking the same emotions as some of the most beautiful works of Ravel and Debussy." Not too difficult, probably early college level at most, but expression is what matters most in this piece. Duration about 5 minutes.

S925: Intimate Echoes for Tenor Saxophone and Piano by Robert Lemay. Resolute Music Publications, 2011, SS, 24 + 8 pages. Commissioned by Dr. Jeffrey E. Vickers in 2010. Lemay's style of incorporating advanced saxophone techniques produces an 'echo-like' effect in this composition. The saxophone produces numerous slap-tongues at loud dynamics, which fade instantly — leaving a very soft chordal 'echo' in the piano. Lemay's modern language and scales present a worthwhile challenge for any saxophonist. Composed with piano accompaniment, Intimate Echoes would be appropriate for any recital setting. In keeping with his approach, Lemay also uses other extended techniques such as bisbigliandi, multiphonics (fingerings are provided on a separate sheet), and high altissimo.

/ S110: Vocalise Op. 34 No. 14 for Soprano or Tenor Saxophone and Piano by Sergei Rachmaninoff arranged by Ronald L. Caravan. Ethos Publications, SS. The genesis of this arrangement was preparation for a recording session where Dr. Caravan was to record this piece on soprano saxophone. His accompanist insisted he should try the piece in the original concert key (C sharp minor) instead of the available transcriptions which are a half step lower or higher. After trying it in this key they decided it was much more effective and this arrangement is the result. While E-flat minor (six flats) may seem like a difficult key, this piece moves slowly and it should not be a problem for any player at intermediate or above level.

S828: Variations on Taki's "Kojo No Tsuki" for Alto Saxophone and Piano by Takefusa Sasamori. Peer Music, 1963, SS, 7 + 3 pages. Takefusa Sasamori (1928-) is Japanese composer and music educator who studied in Japan and the United States. In 1961, while studying under Henry Cowell at the Manhattan Conservatory, Sasamori was decided to compose this piece for Sigurd Rascher and his skill in the altissimo. The resulting work is a set of Variations on a popular Japanese folksong composed in 1901 by pianist and songwriter Rentaro Taki. "Kojo No Tsuki" which means "Moon over the Ruins of a Castle." Sasamori sets Taki's characteristically Japanese melody in a Western compositional style through an exploration of polyphony and chromaticism. Contrary to traditional form, the theme appears climactically after the third (of five) variations in the altissimo range of the saxophone. The theme which is slow and could probably be played down an octave is the only section with altissimo above F-sharp.

S411: Renewing the Myth for alto saxophone and piano by Marilyn Shrude, saxophone part edited by John Sampen. Editions Henry Lemoine, 1998, SS, 18 + 7 pages. This piece was written for John Sampen in 1988 by Marilyn Shrude who is Distinguished Artist Professor of Music at Bowling Green State College. It exploits both the theme and the legend of Paganini's 24th Caprice for violin. Germinal motives from the Caprice are introduced in both the saxophone and piano and become increasingly complex in a mildly atonal framework. The cadenza incorporates not only the Paganini, but fragments of famous saxophone literature. As the piece unfolds, the increasing technical difficulty recalls the myth - that Paganini sold his soul for his virtuosity. It was a required work for the participants of the International Adolphe Sax Competition in 2002.

His highly inventive compositional style—which incorporates his love of jazz and themes inspired by a wide range of interests and concerns, including literature, the arts, politics, and everyday life-results in works with a dramatic musical language that is distinctly his own. This piece for soprano saxophone and piano (plus optional large desk bells for each performer!) includes the unusual instruction that the saxophonist and the piano should be as far apart from each other as possible. Upper college level with a duration of about 4 minutes.

S372: Souvenir: Toccata for Soprano Saxophone and Piano by Robert Walker. Maecenas, (written in) 1994, SS, 16 + 3 pages. The composer wrote: "Two friends, who happen also to be a saxophone and piano duo, were visiting me in my adopted home of Bali. . . I wrote them this, literally as a souvenir of their stay in Bali. It is a joyful piece, with no deeper meaning than to portray a little of the country, incorporating some Balinese rhythms and modes." It appears that most of the Balinese flavor is found in the piano part which has some tricky although frequently repeated rhythms.

The two major musical styles in my life have been jazz and classical music. In the past, out of necessity, I have had to keep them separated. This piece is an attempt on my part to integrate these styles. I do not consider this piece 'third stream' but something of itself. It should not played for its jazz elements, or for that matter, for its classical elements, but as something in between— hence the title." An advanced piece with a duration of about 7 minutes. The piano part appears to be the more challenging of the two.
