Chris Gumbley

Sax Quartet SATB
£15.00
Cat. No. GP304

As it says on the tin, this comprises a chorale melody followed by an intriguing set of five variations. The music has a certain neo-classical quality and requires a classical approach to tone and phrasing, even if some of the harmonic language lends itself to jazz. Suited to a contemporary saxophone quartet looking for something new and refreshing.

Chorale Theme: Sustained, simply
Variation 1: Animated
Variation 2: Well Marked
Variation 3: Slow and Expressive
Variation 4: Sustained
Variation 5: As Fast as Possible
