Hello,

I am looking for some classical or light music cello/Eb saxophone duets at intermediate level. The only duet I know (Stallaert's Bestiaire) is too advanced, and too "modern" as well. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Do cello duets and have the Eb (baritone is nice w/ cello)player read bass clef like it was treble clef. When you read bass clef as treble clef and change the key signature it essentially transposes the Eb sax to C. For example a A in bass clef is a F in treble clef. But when you transpose that A(concert)to a Eb instrument it is F# (up a M6). That's why the key signature needs changed.

Yes, that would work indeed, as long as it's within the (non-altissimo) range of the saxophone.
