I think those liner notes say that only the bass sax had been employed in performances at that time, but I think the other instruments were probably in existence. I'll have to dig out that CD again.mkemp said:...at the time only the bass sax had been invented...
I believe that was composed after I left - '96 or so? Don't suppose you know of a recording? Perhaps I could double all of the parts?. ..Michigansax said:There is a great piece by Elwood Derr (of I Never Saw Another Butterfly fame)called Passacaglia: In rememerance of Carl Orff (he was a student of Orff). It is for double sax quartet. By far my favorite sax ensemble piece. Have you played this prodigal???
See post #4J.Max said:No mention yet of Caravan's arrangement of Pictures At An Exhibition? I'm a little surprised...
It requires a sopranino and bass saxophone. The school sopranino at IU had a custom made Rousseau sopranino mouthpiece for it, and the guy playing it STILL had a rough time. That part sucks.Martinman said:See post #4
I forgot the exact title and who arranged it.
That is a really cool piece though. The best part is the soprano on Ballad of the Unhatched Chickens. Our soprano player hated it.
By a twist of fate I happened to find a recording of a live performance. We worked on it at Michigan but Derr didn't want us to do it. Oh well.prodigal said:I believe that was composed after I left - '96 or so? Don't suppose you know of a recording? Perhaps I could double all of the parts?
