  • December 26, 2007 Great concert piece

    If you like shifting time signatures, then this is the piece for you! Throughout this piece's movements, the time signature changes anywhere from 4/4 to 5/8, sometimes changing every other measure. Diversions is hard to sight read, but a lot of fun once you can play it...

    successfully. I am a high school student, and the crowd loved this piece when I performed it at our winter concert. Highly reccommended!

  • December 11, 2007 Good Piece

    This is a very cool piece. I discovered it a few months back completely by accident on amazon while searching for Diversion (1943) by Heiden. The intro is really interesting and and has some elements later that remind me of Danny Elfman. The 2nd movement I don't care as...

    much for. It has an older classical feel to it. The 3rd is a lot of fun and incorporates some jazz elements into it. The 4th is very pretty. Definitely one of the most beautiful works of music I've ever heard. The 5th is the longest. It is really fun I'm 14 and I've been playing the tenor sax for 2 years. This piece is a bit of a challenge, but not too hard. It really helps to listen to the recordings.

  • March 29, 2007 Sort of hard

    This is the kind of piece that is hard to sit there and sight read but once you practice it for a couple days straight you can get it down and it sounds a lot more complicated then it is. Plus you can get the James Houlik recordings of this...

    to hear what it sounds like and then it can come together a lot easier. The only issue is the difficulty of the piano part and finding someone who'd be willing to play the time signature changes that happen like every measure, especially movement 5 which is my personal favorite. It's a very good song that will blow your audience away when they hear it, so check it out if you're a tenor player itching for something challenging.
