New Saxophone quartet; 'Persiflage' now available to pre-order.

(March 05, 2012)

Persiflage final cover 

We are delighted to present our newest SATB Saxophone quartet 'Persiflage' (sporting the stunning new 2012 cover design you'll notice). An original composition by renowned Saxophonist Alistair Parnell.

'Pesiflage' or light banter was commissioned in early 2012 by the Nottingham based saxophone quartet of the same name. With a duration of 4'40 minutes, this charming quartet is an excellent addition to any quartet collection in addition to being simply 'audience friendly' and listenable in general.

Scored for SATB saxophones, the piece eases in with a lyrical memorable theme before graduating to a more forward moving inner section, all the time weaving in those seperate 'voices' very effectively. The piece carries a building 'celebratory' feel in response to the original subject matter and finally returns to the original theme in conclusion. Persiflage is around grade 6 standard.

We are offering free P&P on all pre-orders of this publication (estimated release date May/June). Simply buy as normal through the checkout and your shiny new quartet will be despatched on release day (with free P&P). Click here to follow the link to the shop page.

Audio file coming soon in addition to 'minus one' practice tracks so ensemble members can practice at home 'with the band'. watch this space......
