Born in Poland, Alexandre Tansman spent most of his musical career in France where he moved after attending school in Poland. Written in 1952, the Sonatine for Bassoon and Piano (transcribed for baritone saxophone by Wayne Hau and myself) is a precise example of how his music combines both neoclassical and French elements of music. Chromatic, expressive and free, all three movements of the piece explore the range and facility of the instrument.
The Concerto in E flat major for alto saxophone and string orchestra, Op. 109, was written by Alexander Glazunov in 1934. It is deeply rooted in Romanticism and has entered the standard saxophone repertoire. The work premiered in Nyköping, Sweden, on 25 November 1934, with Sigurd Raschèr as soloist.
Screaming 229a was written in the summer of 1996 and slightly revised during the spring of 1997. The piece is in one predominantly loud movement marked ‘Moto Perpetuo’ and the title refers to composer Joe Cutler’s flat number in Warsaw where he wrote the piece.
Hoe Down is a “high energy” and exciting piece particularly suitable for an end of a concert, encore or as a competition piece. Hoe Down was originally written for saxophone sextet, (AA, TT, BB and optional drums). It was recorded by the Apollo Saxophone Quartet on their Cd First & Foremost. Subsequently re-scored for saxophone quartet, Hoe Down is a popular feature for the baritone player.
