(Grade 5) DIALOGUES FOR SAXOPHONE QUARTET, WINDS AND PERCUSSION Saxophone quartet with concert band.
Expect the unexpected in this major new work for Saxophone quartet and band by James Curnow. Built on a grand thematic plane, this tour de force employs the full range of expression. Gleaming modernity; dark modality; rhythms ranging from tentative to deliberate; and throughout, a sense of mysterious expectation for what is next to come. Expectations are fulfilled with the Presto finale. Not every band is capable of playing at this level, but if yours is, consider breaking new ground with Dialogues.
