  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. Chagallian Scenes

    Composer: Raum, Elizabeth
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Baritone Sax
    Genre: Contemporary

    Written for Baritone Saxophone and Piano, this is a challening work that is most suited for a college age student. 

    Program notes from the composer:

    Just as Chagall mixed landscapes, characters, and creatures into a surreal concoction in his paintings, Chagallian Scenes does so in music. So we might start with a march only to dissolve into a waltz with flashes of dissonance morphing into cacophony, or we might settle comfortably into a key when suddenly it veers into an unrelated other. The movements are named after the pictures that inspired them.

    The first movement, Promenade, or  Der Spaziergang, opens with cheery walking music appropriate for a man and his lovely lady out for a stroll. But the mood soon  edges into whole tone surrealism reflecting that the pink frocked lady is floating, held down to earth only by the grasp of her companion.

    The music for The Wandering Jew  is influenced by the diverse dwellings of the Jewish diaspora, ranging from the Moorish influence of the Andalusia to the Klesmer of New York. 

    The third movement, Au Dessus de la Ville (Over the town) has drifting rhythm, like the drifting figures over the town. The scene is dreamy and surrealistic with the music moving in and out of sync.

    I And the Village, considered Chagall's most famous painting, cuts from one scene to another as if remembering a lifetime. The man with the scythe  trudges along throughout, listening to the sounds of the village: a goat bleating, a Klesmer violinist, the bells of the Russian Orthodox Church… it is a tapestry of joy and tragedy, hard labor and festive dance.
