does anyone know good arrangements for a saxophone trio?
it should be on a professional level and nothing jazzy. can absolutely be contemporary music.

can be arrangements or original compositions.
i doesn't matter what instruments are used. 3 different saxes, 3 of the same kind, any combination.
it's really very open.

If you are open to baroque transcriptions, here is a small collection of trios for either SAT or SAB:

I heard that the Bach Trio Sonata II was played last year on a senior recital at Ithaca College.

I've been working on trio rep here at USM, so this is something I know a bit about. This is what we looked at:

"Trio" by Franz Tourniez, ATB, Poulenc-ish and quite fun
pnoxoud by Michael Denhoff, ATB or SATB or solo, hard but awesome
The Three Chairs by Hans Kox, ATB, also very hard but awesome
Rough Winds Do Shake the Darling Buds by Eric Moe, ATB, minimalist

I also second whoever suggested the Doo-Dah by Albright, AAA.

The James Hook trios for 3 flutes work very well for three like saxophones. I have played most of them with three altos. They are from the Baroque era.

Go to windmusicplus.com they have all kinds of sax trio stuff. My family bought a lot of ATB from them. The gazebo series stuff arranged by Bill Holcombe are awesome. Most by Holcombe are ATB w/ alternate parts which is great. Sometimes the little one(yoiugest daughter) plays the optional soprano part on the ATB stuff.
