Ballade is featured on ABRSM, London College of Music, and Trinity Jazz Saxophone syllabus (both Eb and Bb sax options).
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 audio tracks (choose between CD or audio downloads code) containing; Tuning note (concert A), full demonstration track (Alto saxophone & piano) plus backing tracks for both Eb and Bb saxophones.
The audio track can be heard by clicking play (triangle button) on the Soundcloud player below or by clicking the link below if using a mobile device, alternatively, watch our short Youtube video;
Also please note that 'Ballade' is available as a PDF / MP3 EMAIL delivery option (just select this option on ordering via the drop down box, and the files will be emailed to you within 24 hours).
