  1. A Suffusion of Blue

    Composer: Heritage, Lee
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Alto Sax, Baritone Sax, Soprano Sax, Tenor Sax
    Genre: Contemporary
    The 4 independent voices of the sax quartet weave together simple rhythmic gestures and lilting melodies in a tapestry of contrapuntal lines in this exciting work. This playful mood gives way momentarily to a more relaxed singing style, but the optimistic energy of the opening quickly resurfaces. The 4 instruments dance again in a crescendo of counterpoint, converging at the last moment in a richly harmonized, chorale-like statement of the original melody. Learn More

  2. Bassoonisms

    Composer: Buss, Howard J.
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Bassoon
    Genre: Contemporary
    The titles of its 3 movements, "Basslets," "Moonstruck," and "Festoons," are derived in part from the spelling of the word “bassoon.” In addition to musically capturing qualities of the subjects of the titles, they also explore musical characteristics unique to the bassoon. Basslets are tiny, elegant and colorful tropical fish that when observed in large groups create a mesmerizing effect as they flit about. The word “moonstruck” refers to the condition of being out of character due to being in love. Festoons are decorative garlands of flowers, ribbons, lights, or other objects hung in a draped fashion. Score and parts are included. Learn More

    III. DOLPHIN DANCE (a bourree)

    IV. WAVE PLAY (a rondo)

    Dauphin Island is a barrier island on the gulf coast of Alabama.  It remains a quiet community populated by fishermen, locals, teachers and students at the Sea Lab facility, without the plastic gristle of so many near-by tourist spots.  People do visit the town and old Fort Gains on the east end of the edge of Mobile Bay.

    The suite, dedicated to my wife who loves the Gulf, was written for Dr. Sandra Lunte (who shared that interest) and the flute ensemble at the Northeast Louisiana University in Monroe, LA.
     
    The fourth part was written for alto flute, but may be played, except for the second movement, on the C flute.

  8. Fort Worth Funk

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Alto Sax, Baritone Sax, Soprano Sax, Tenor Sax
    Genre: Contemporary

    SATB:

    Fort Worth Funk was written to provide a light-hearted, engaging selection for Saxophone Quartet.  It begins with a dramatic statement from the Baritone Saxophone, who lays down the opening groove.  The other members of the quartet enter one at a time, while the composition builds to a virtuostic moment for the full quartet.  The staggered entrances also provide an opportunity to stage theatrics as well.  Appropriate rhythms and articulations are meticulously notated to help players achieve an authentic “funk” style in their performance.  The piece is loosely based on the chord changes to the jazz standard “Well You Needn’t”, which appears briefly in swing style at the end of the piece.  Chord changes and written solos are provided during the improvised sections, to bring the piece within the grasp of a wide spectrum of players.

  9. From the Southern Mountains

    Composer: Hilfiger, Jay
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Alto Sax, Baritone Sax, Soprano Sax, Tenor Sax
    Genre: Contemporary

    Composed for Saxophone Quartet (SATB), this piece is in 3 movements:

    I. Billy Boy

    II. A Story That Has No End...

    III. A Frog Went a-Courtin'

    Many of the immigrants who settled in the Appalachian Mountains of the American southeast came from the British Isles.  They brought with them folksongs that evolved, over long periods of time, into favorite American songs.  John Jay Hilfiger has used three of these songs as the basis for the three movements of this work.  The settings are not in typical folksong style.  Instead, each tune is treated in a unique way, expanded upon, and shaped in an idiomatic way for the instruments.  The result is a work in which the superposition of familiar tunes with unexpected contrasts offers a new perspective on well-known melodies that are shared among all the players.
