50+ Greatest Classics for Saxophone
In 50+ Greatest Classics for Saxophone, many of the tunes are easy, but not all. The book is suitable for beginner to intermediate alto saxophone players and ideal for the progressing younger player who needs music to play that is not too high or too low. It has more than fifty classics, so you’ll always have a good variety of music to play.
We’ve gathered together and arranged extracts from the most popular classics from the world’s greatest composers. It’s brilliant when you start to play a piece that you gradually begin to recognise. Questions fill your mind. Where do I know this from? How come I know this? I don’t recognise the title but….somehow it’s there stuck in your head! Those are the pieces I’ve included here – you know the ones!
Composers include – Bach, Purcell, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Rossini, Beethoven, Chopin, Delibes, Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Elgar, Strauss, Saint-Saëns, Holst, Dukas, Bizet, Verdi, Puccini, Wagner and many more and we’ve compiled the arrangements with the easiest at the beginning of the book. It has been a lot of fun.
