Includes CD, featuring play-along and complete versions: Ramon Ricker, soprano saxophone, Bill Dobbins, piano.
This work combines musical elements from both the contemporary "classical" and the jazz traditions. The three movements (I. Introduction & Allegro, II. Ballad, III. Allegro-Waltz-Allegro) can be performed separately.
Though originally written for soprano saxophone and piano, it is equally idiomatic for the entire saxophone family. Performance time appr. 24 min. Advanced
"The production and printing is first rate, with page turns laid out for ease of performance; each movement printed as a separate multiple-fold sheet. This major work deserves to be in the mainstream of the saxophone repertoire and demonstrates the continually deepening link between the saxophoneï¿½s classic repertoire and jazz voice."
