Jeffrey Heisler has worked with composer luminaries, such as Ellen Zwilich, Morton Subotnick, Steve Reich, and Louis Andriessen, transcribing their works for saxophone. Now he brings Chen Yi's often-performed Monologue for unaccompanied clarinet to the saxophonist's repertoire. "Chen Yi's haunting Monologue packs a multiplicity of voluminous ideas into a small package. It might seem unlikely that she could distill her impressions of a true story by writer Lu Xun into a mere four minutes, but she does so with consummate skill and idiomatic use of the instrument." (Michael Cameron, Fanfare) For advanced performers. Duration: 5' ______________________________________ Text on the scanned back cover: Monologue (Impressions on The True Story of Ah Q) for unaccompanied Saxophone (114-41561) Originally for clarinet (available as 114-40948), MONOLOGUE has been adapted for any size unaccompanied saxophone by Jeffrey Heisler. This 5-minute virtuosic work is inspired by The Bio of Ah Q written by the 20th-century essayist Lu Xun, in which he called on the Chinese people to rise and give battle to feudalism.
