Schwarzer Tanzer was written for Christopher Boatwright, whose career began as a principal dancer with the Stuttgart Ballet, one of the first black dancers to achieve recognition at this level in Germany. Much to his frustration, media coverage of his performances focused on his colour rather than his talent.

When he wanted a piece that could be choreographed, I therefore avoided ethnic music clichés (despite the title, which means "black dancer") and instead went for a Germanic fusion of Weil and oompah band.

'Schwarzer Tänzer's popularity led to its regular inclusion in concert programmes and a performance at the World Saxophone Conference in Italy.

Although 'Schwarzer Tänzer' has been performed many times, the dancer's untimely death means that it remains undanced.

Set on the ABRSM Alto/Baritone Saxophone Syllabus Grade 8.
