Chagallian Scenes composed by Elizabeth Raum (1945-). For baritone saxophone solo with piano. Solo music. Published by Cimarron Music Press (BV.1841).
Just as Chagall mixed landscapes, characters, and creatures into a surreal concoction in his paintings, Chagalllian Scenes does so in music. So we might start with a march only to dissolve into a waltz with flashes of dissonance morphing into cacophony, or we might settle comfortably into a key when suddenly it veers into an unrelated other. The movements are named after the pictures that inspired them.
