  • This imaginative adaptation of Beethoven’s Bagatelle No. 25 captures the essence of the original piano work while enhancing the music’s effectiveness by assuring all parts are arranged idiomatically. Two significant examples would be measures 51-54 and 98-103; keeping the pianistic motives note-for-note would have proven to be incredibly awkward and clunky. All modifications preserve harmonies, musical gestures, style, and form.

  • Soprano Saxophone, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone.

  • Duration: about 3'00"

  • Score and set of parts - 18 pages.
