Songs for Claire is intended to portray a life journey, with all the joys and trials that may be encountered. From a personal point of view, it was written in memory of the composer's childhood best friend, Claire, who sadly died of cancer aged 10. Most people will be able to relate to the moods of the three movements, and draw from their own life experiences in order to create the expression desired.

Includes a CD of the piece performed by Keri Degg.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This is a rare find - a piece with real emotional integrity which exploits the subtle expressive sounds of the soprano saxophone. As a saxophone teacher I have recommended this to a number of my intermediate level students who have enjoyed playing it, and have used it for recital purposes and AS/A level performance. Rewarding to listen to and to play, the technical demands are not too great (around grade 6+)but encourage the development of expressive playing and a good sound. The timbral trills are an unusual and effective device which students have enjoyed getting to grips with. The accompanying CD is really useful, with a lovely demo recording and a separate backing track for practice.

Customer Rating 'Songs for Claire' is a refreshing addition to the saxophone repertoire. It's style is mainly calm, melodic and expressive with hints of jazz ballad at times enabling the performer to really show emotional content. The middle movement was full of passion, and the timbral trills (chart provided) were easier than anticipated, with startling effective results. This suite would make an excellent addition to any recital, and great for players of around grade 6/7+

Customer Rating I brought this CD, as I heard a friend play it and fell in love with it! the movements are very expressive and accessible and the trimbal trill effects in movementII were fun to work on. There were clear instructions, and the CD demo helped me achieve the desired effect. All in All a fantastic piece and I look forward to looking out for more from this composer.
