Nova Saxophone Quartet (Charts)

Rapsodie for Saxophone (arr. for quartet)

Greg Knapp’s stunning transcription and arrangement of Claude Debussy’s work composed for saxophone soloist and orchestra is far more exciting than the original, often criticized as an uninspired effort. This arrangement was informed by original orchestral recordings and the unorchestrated piano/soloist score. The orchestral reduction that includes significant soloist passages pushes the skills of the quartet to its limits both technically and musically. The work was recorded by the Nova Saxophone Quartet on their InNOVAtions recording available in digital download format from Cd Baby.

Sax-O-Doodle

Rudy Wiedoeft was one of the most important early American saxophonists. Popular during the days of early radio vaudevillian times, Wiedoeft was a widely recognized soloist who created a flashy, virtuosic solo repertoire. He was of significant influence on many early jazz saxophonists, though he was not classified as a jazz player.

Rick Lawn’s fun arrangement of Wiedoeft’s classic Sax-O-Doodle can be purchased here after previewing the recording on Outside the Box and downloading the PDF score.
