  1. Black Notes

    Composer: Browning, Zack
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Alto Sax, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary
    with Piano: Written for Joe Lulloff and inspired by jazz saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s composition Blacknuss. In the introduction to Blacknuss Kirk states "there are 52 white notes and 36 black notes on the piano. We're going to play the black notes only, if you don't mind." The opposition suggested between black and white notes is expanded to include static and dynamic elements, consonant and dissonant harmonies, and pattered and non-patterned events. The title also refers to the middle section's exclusive use of the black notes of the piano. Vigorous swing rhythms contrast with sections of haunting beauty. Learn More

  6. Cadenzas and Interludes #1

    Composer: Buss, Howard J.
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Alto Sax, Violin
    Genre: Contemporary

    Violin and Alto Saxophone

    Cadenzas and Interludes #1 "Memories from the Isle of Mull" was composed by Howard J. Buss and dedicated to Drs. Rachael and Stephen Fischer. It was inspired by the composer’s visit to the picturesque Isle of Mull in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides. Particularly memorable was a Saturday night Cèilidh* in the island’s capital, Tobermory, which included traditional music from the area. The Scottish musical influences are not direct in Cadenzas and Interludes #1; rather, their spirit is blended with Buss’s style of soaring lyricism with a modern bent.

    *Pronounced, Kay-lee. In Gaelic, a Cèilidh is a social gathering featuring music, storytelling, and dance.

  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.

  11. Chiaroscuro

    Composer: Prince, Whitney
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Alto Sax, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano

    Chiaroscuro was composed in 2007. Its title refers to the contrasting effects of light and shade in painting, a technique usually associated with such seventeenth-century artists as Caravaggio and Rembrandt. The work is dedicated to Larry Van Oyen, my good friend and current saxophone teacher and Director of Bands at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. When I forwarded the score to Larry, I shared these comments with him: “In many ways, this is my most personal piece. It probably comes closest to expressing the unsettled quality of my soul at this juncture in life – a jumble of sorrows and hopes, worries and faith.”

  14. Constance

    Composer: Nunes, Matthew
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Baritone Sax, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary
    with Piano

    Constance is a piece composed for Nicholas Kevin Phillips, a saxophone player I met at the University of Central Florida, as a personal thank you for his generous donation to my “Get Matt to Maryland” Rally via rally.org. The inspiration for this work is the constant drive required to get where we want our lives to go. This is represented by the striving baritone saxophone melody. It evolves slowly, reflectively, aiming for the heights – a celebration of success and joy. The celebration is short-lived as we realize we have not yet arrived and that we are farther away than we initially thought… Learn More

    Composer: Ardovino, Lori
    Instrumentation: Solo Instruments: Alto Sax
    Genre: Contemporary

    unaccompanied

    Diversions for solo saxophone was written in 2013. According to the dictionary, “a diversion is the act or an instance of diverting or turning aside, something that distracts the mind and relaxes or entertains, or a maneuver that draws the attention of an opponent away from a planned point of action. Each of the four movements diverts and distracts, turning in all directions that are unpredictable and unexpected, but are entertaining and amusing all the same.
