We are pleased to present 'Ballade', a sentimental ballad (no surprise there then!) for Eb or Bb saxophone & piano.
Written in May 2011 as a small surprise for inspirational saxophonist / teacher Alistair Parnell (Nottingham. www.isax.co.uk ), the piece (around 4'30 long) is unashamedly sentimental, allowing the saxophones more 'commercial' qualities to be appreciated.
Complete with lip slurrs and subtle jazz inflections, 'Ballade' (around grade 7 standard) is perfect for jazz and classical musicians alike.
In addition to the pull out saxophone part (universal for both Eb and Bb saxes) you will also receive a seperate piano part for the Bb sax option, PLUS a CD containing; Tuning note (concert A), full demonstration track (Alto saxophone & piano) plus backing tracks for both EB and Bb saxophones.
The audio track is available to listen to by clicking play (triangle button) on the Soundcloud player below or by clicking the link below if using a mobile device;
Once you have been through the checkout, your PDF and MP3 files will be emailed to you within 48 hours (and usually well under 24!). Remember that this book is also available as hard printed copy (with CD), see here.
