Description

Gives the aspiring saxophonists practice in the kind of musical partnership required by chamber music

Béla Bartók (1881-1945) composed his 44 Duos for Two Violins in 1931. These unique musical miniatures combine folk melodies from Eastern Europe with the musical language of the twentieth century in an exciting blend of tradition and modernity. For the present sheet music twenty of these duos for saxophones (of the same pitch) were arranged. The pieces allow players to share the pleasure of chamber music while exploring this fascinating sound world. On alto saxophones, most of the duets sound in the original keys (Nos. 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 16, 17). For the other duets Marcin Langer selected a key based on the sound of the piece and its suitability for the saxophone.

Reviews

(...) sehr interessante und gelungene Bearbeitungen osteuropäischer Volksmelodien, die mit der Musiksprache des 20. Jahrhunderts verbunden sind. (...) Der Bearbeiter hat es sehr gut verstanden, unter Berücksichtigung des Klangcharakters der Stücke und der Spielbarkeit auf dem Saxophon die entsprechenden Tonarten zu wählen. Schwierigkeitsgrad U/M 1 - Für die Musikschularbeit et cetera empfohlen.
Nmz Nr. 5, 2017 (Frank Klüger)
