Imaginary Folksongs for Soprano/Alto Saxophone and Piano

Originally written for saxophonist Nathan Nabb of Locals 29-717 (Granite City, IL) and 2-197 (St. Louis, MO), this engaging set of six short pieces runs the gamut from virtuosic to melancholy to humorous. This audience-pleaser utilizes alto and soprano saxophone, and a few extended techniques. Included are: “High in the Andes” (soprano), “Song of Light” (alto), “Magic Island” (alto), “Titania’s Bower” (soprano), “Bonnie-Bye” (soprano), and “The Three Jolly Pigeons” (alto).

Eric Ewazen: A Song From the Heart

Originally composed for trumpet and piano, “A Song from the Heart” immediately captures performers and listeners. A beautiful melodic solo sings over a lush piano accompaniment with passages that linger in the mind well after the performance. Composer Eric Ewazen has transcribed into editions for Eb alto saxophone and piano, Bb clarinet and piano, horn and piano, as well as oboe and piano.
