Persiflage Saxophone Quartet by Alistair Parnell
Scored for SATB saxophones, the piece eases in with a lyrical memorable theme before graduating to a more forward moving inner section, all the time weaving in those seperate ‘voices’ very effectively. The piece carries a building ‘celebratory’ feel in response to the original subject matter and finally returns to the original theme in conclusion. Persiflage is around grade 6 standard.
As a bonus, this publication also comes with CD featuring a full performance track in addition to ‘minus one’ tracks so players can prepare their own part at home ‘with the band’. Click here to hear an excerpt from the CD
