Quartet #1 In Three Movements composed by Bob Mintzer. For saxophone quartet (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones). Grade 6. Score and set of parts. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.16185).
Commissioned by The Apollo Saxophone Quartet of Manchester, England, highlights in this contemporary, concert 'opus' include several short, exposed solos for all, a full-length alto cadenza near the end of the slow second movement, and a fast-paced finale for an unforgettable finish. Drawing from his vast experience as a performing artist, Mintzer's writing for saxophones is truly idiomatic and wonderfully adventurous. Duration 9:40.
