Saxophone Quartet – Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone

This is a complete arrangement of Verdi’s only surviving piece of chamber music, the string quartet in E minor. In four movements this represents a serious challenge for expert players, using the full range of all instruments is used. The four movements explore a wide range of keys and tempi, and use many varied textures and styles from some intricate counterpoint to more lyrical melodies reminiscent of the operas. A chance for sax players to get to know a lesser known gem.
