Beethoven: String Quartet no 14 for Saxophone Quartet (1 mvt)

Beethoven: String Quartet no 14 for Saxophone Quartet sheet musicThe String Quartet no 14, opus 131 has seven movements and Beethoven wanted them to be played without a break. Perhaps you’ve heard it in the movie “A Late Quartet”. In fact, the music was used to structure the movie. We have arranged the first movement, a slow and intense fugue, for saxophone quartet SATB. In it Beethoven explores man’s dark moods as a source of beauty. This is hard-core Romanticism, expressed in captivating music. We think it’s a challenge for the control of tone of your saxophone quartet.

Beethoven: Für Elise for Saxophone Quartet SATB

Beethoven: Für Elise for Saxophone Quartet sheet musicBeethoven’s Für Elise is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written. It is a wonderful melody but it also teaches some musical theory. For instance about arpeggiated chords, chromatic scales and modulations. Moreover, you can use it to memorize the minor second interval. It’s a challenge for expierenced players too once you get past the main theme and venture into the faster and more dramatic section. We’ve arranged Für Elise for various saxophone duet combinations and for saxophone trio. Now we offer you the piece for saxophone quartet SATB. We’ve included an extra arrangement with some modifications.

Schubert: Ave Maria for Saxophone Quartet

Schubert: Ave Maria for Saxophone Quartet sheet musicSchuberts Ellens Dritter Gesang (1825), often referred to as Ave Maria, because of its first words, brings together poetry and music in a beautiful way. We have five different saxophone quartet combinations. The challenge is to give the soprano or the alto saxophone the expression of the human voice, while the others play the accompanying chords, gentle, but dynamic, giving the piece its dreamlike or even hypnotic quality. Schubert called this state of mind Andacht or attention, a religious concentration that transcends discussions about theology and focuses instead on the contemplation of the mysteries of life.

Haydn: String Quartet op 1 no 1 (The Hunt) for Saxophone Quartet

Haydn: String Quartet op 1 no 1 (The Hunt) for Saxophone Quartet sheet music“The Hunt” or “La Chasse” might well be the first string quartet written by Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), also called “the father of the string quartet”. We’ve arranged the complete quartet with 5 movements for SATB. But we also offer the 1st movement for saxophone quartet SATB and AATT. It’s a wonderful cheerful piece of music, both for beginners and more experienced saxophone players. Although it is presto or “in a hurry”,  if an intermediate player takes care of the melody, played by soprano in SATB or first alto in AATT, this piece can also be played by less experienced players.

Mozart: String Quartet no 19 Saxophone Quartet (Dissonance) (1 mvt)

Mozart: String Quartet no 19 for Saxophone Quartet (Dissonance) sheet musicMozart and dissonance! For those of you who assume that Mozart always composed light and sophisticated music, we have a little surprise: the slow introduction to the first movement of his String Quartet no 19 is very powerful music, so powerful that at the time it made listeners feel a little uneasy. So they nicknamed this quartet “Dissonance”. We offer you the first movement (the Adagio-Allegro) of Mozart’s String Quartet no 19 for saxophone quartet SATB.

Pierpont: Jingle Bells for Saxophone

Pierpont: Jingle Bells for Saxophone Quartet sheet musicWe have arranged the most famous Christmas song since Christmas began for all you folks to play it in such a way that you might as well call it “jazzy belles”. Because to tell you the truth: this song was originally not written for Christmas and, yes, it is about picking up girls. However, we don’t mind if you play it for Christmas with your saxophone group. We have arranged it for quartet, quintet, trio and duo. Also we’ve added swing timing and jazz lines. Jingle Bells is composed by an organist, James Lord Pierpont (1822-1893), in the 1840’s or early 1850’s, and first published in 1857. That’s one of the few things we know for sure.

Mozart: Adagio for Glass Harmonica for Saxophone

Mozart: Adagio for Glas Harmonica for Saxophone sheet musicThe metaphor is perhaps an easy one: the music for the glass harmonica is as fragile as the material it is played on, and yet it is true. Mozart probably wrote Adagio for Glass Harmonica in 1791, just a few months before his death. It makes you wonder whether this angelic and serene music expresses an apprehension of his death. We have made four arrangements of Mozart’s Adagio for this almost forgotten instrument, which was popular in the second half of the eighteenth century. For saxophone quartet S/AATB and saxophone trio S/AAT

Beethoven: Für Elise for Saxophone Duo

Beethoven: Für Elise for Saxophone DuoBeethoven’s Für Elise (officially known as Bagatelle 25 in A minor) has one of the best known intro’s in classical music. It was even sampled in rap music. American rapper Nas used it in his 2003 hit single ‘I can’  to call upon Afro-American kids to make an effort to achieve success. It’s an intro that everybody feels he can play. The other parts are more diverse, expressing different moods: serenity, cheerfulness and passion. We’ve arranged Für Elise for six different saxophone duo combinations: AB, AT, SA, SB, ST and TB. We also have arrangements for saxophone quartet and saxophone trio
