Violin and alto saxophone - Grade 5
Composed by Howard J. Buss (1951-). 20th Century. 2 scores. Duration 13 minutes. Brixton Publications #B371S. Published by Brixton Publications (B7.B371S).

Item Number: B7.B371S

8.5 x 11 in inches.

In five movements: The Dog Who Chased a Lion, The Astronomer, The Camel Who Wanted Horns, The Crow and the Pitcher, and The Rabbits and the Frogs. Each movement begins with a performer reciting the corresponding fable. The colorful and engaging music is idiomatic and sophisticated, yet it is accessible because of its strong programmatic nature. This piece is a hit with all types of audiences, including those comprised of children! It makes a great concert feature and also is highly effective on out-reach concerts in the schools.
