Hello everyone,

I am in need of information about the following three pieces:
Bencriscutto--Serenade for Alto Saxophone and band
Nelson--Danza Capriccio
Whitney--Introduction and Samba

Has anybody played or heard these? Does anyone know of any recordings of any of them (I know Dale Underwood's of Introduction and Samba)? Does anyone know what grade the band parts are on (1-5, 5 being the hardest)?

Any information you could give me would be great.

Thanks,
AltoDM

The Whitney was written for Sigurd Rascher. There is a recording and a video of him playing it (the infamous Buescher instructional video with Everett Gates asking to turn off the lamp and Carina playing the overtone series). I believe there is also a recording of Don Sinta playing the Whitney.

There is a very good recording of Sinta playing the whitney... another good recording would be Rousseau's.

SOTW's own Dr. Paul Cohen has recorded the Whitney with the Hanover Winds, CD available from Mark Custom recordings.

Rousseau's CD with the Belgian Air Force Band contains the Bencriscutto Serenade. I got mine direct from Rousseau when he was here last fall.

Danza Capriccio was recorded by Dr. Keith Young on his Saxophone Journal Masterclass CD on double-tonguing. I trust this is still available from Dorn Publications.
