The first transcription of the autograph in printed form. Saxophone and reduction edition includes two solo parts: one following the autograph instrumental instructions, and another in which the saxophone adopts material from parts assigned to other instruments. With critical commentary.
“This well-conceived setting of the Debussy classic, considered part of the saxophone's core repertoire, is written for alto saxophone with piano accompaniment. The piano part is of similar difficulty to the solo. With effective dynamic contrasts, mixed meters, and melodic and rhythmic variety throughout, the soloist and pianist must demonstrate precise execution of rhythms and observe all dynamic indications for a memorable performance.”--The Instrumentalist
