Cleopha composed by Scott Joplin (1868-1917). Arranged by Olivier Jaquiery. Saxophone Quartet. For Saxophone Quartet (SATB). Full Score and Set of Parts. Published by Advance Music (AV.7668).
The march Two Step Cleophawas published in 1902, at the beginning of the middle period of Joplin's creative work. The piece shows the characteristic feature of a march: It makes little use of syncopations and should therefore be played in a faster tempo. In order to take full advantage of the saxophone quartet's range, this arrangement is not written in F major - as in the original - but in D flat major.
