The Irish singer-songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan possibly had his greatest success in 1972 with Clair. With its jazzy harmony, this song deviated a little from the spirit of the time. Stefan Schwalgin took the theme of Clair as a starting point, and gave the melody to the alto saxophone. His arrangement fits the tradition of solo works in which it is not so much about technical virtuosity, but rather about the sincerity and charm of the expression. Let your saxophonist shine with this luscious new solo work.

Clair, ein jazziges "Liebeslied" an ein Baby, war wohl der grosste Erfolg des irischen Popsangers Gilbert O'Sullivan. Stefan Schwalgin - selbst Vater von drei Kindern - liess sich vom Thema des Liedes aus dem Jahr 1972 zu einer Blasorchesterbearbeitung inspirieren, in der das Altsaxophon die Rolle des Sangers ubernimmt. Das Arrangement steht in der Tradition von Solostucken, bei denen es weniger auf technische Virtuositat als vielmehr auf Wahrhaftigkeit und Eleganz des Ausdrucks ankommt. Der Solist wird hierbei durch einen einfallsreichen und inspirierenden Orchesterhintergrund unterstutzt.

Clair (1972) est probablement le plus grand succes de l'auteur-compositeurinterprete irlandais Gilbert O'Sullivan. Stefan Schwalgin a confie la melodie au saxophone alto. Cet arrangement s'inscrit dans la lignee des solos qui ne consacrent pas la virtuosite mais la musicalite, l'expressivite et la couleur sonore, a l'instar des solos de Johnny Hodges, le brillant saxophoniste de Duke Ellington. L'accompagnement orchestral est particulierement inspire et ingenieux. Il souligne a merveille la poesie du soliste.

Clair (1972) e probabilmente il piu grande successo dell'autore-compositore irlandese Gilbert O' Sullivan. Stefan Schwalgin ha affidato la melodia al sax contralto. Questo arrangiamento si puo collocare tra i soli che non evidenziano la virtuosita, bensi la musicalita e l'espressivita, alla maniera di Johnny Hodges, il brillante sassofonista di Duke Ellington. L'accompagnamento orchestrale e particolarmente ispirato ed ingegnoso.
