Description

Blue Baroque Saxophone is a collection of modern re-workings of eight pieces taken from the Baroque period and set in various blues styles. For many years it has been appreciated that direct transcriptions of music from this era work particularly well on saxophone as the instrument has much in common with the oboe. Here we take things one step further and introduce rhythmic and harmonic devices of the present day. The pieces are of moderate length and difficulty.

Reviews

Noch nie war so viel Barockmusik wie heute - und so hat eine Bearbeitung im populären Gewand schon eine gewisse Tradition. James Rae gibt den alten Werken in seinen Arrangements das gewisse Bluesfeeling. Durch kleine formale, rhythmische und harmonische Änderungen gelingt ihm die stilistische Anpassung der alten an die neue Musik. Die klanglichen Eigenschaften des Saxophons runden diese schöne Mischung ab und eröffnen auch jungen Saxophonisten und ihrem Publikum die musikalische Vielfalt ihres Instrumentes. ensemble Nr. 4, 2009, S. 73 (Manuel Rösler)
