Richard Lambert: Humoresque

Books | Saxophone

Catalogue No: FTNFM639
Composer: Richard Lambert
Format: Sheet Music | Score

Composed in January 2009, this short tour de force was originally written for Bassoon, with this arrangement for any Saxophone being made in 2017.

Structured in a simple ternary form, the outer sections are highly chromatic and there are many changes of time signature, giving it highly rhythmic energy. The brief central section is more reflective and is a free development of a motif heard in bars 30 to 35: an eighteen-note 'theme' is subjected serially to four variations in a quasi-waltz style, employing this time a consistent 3/4 time signature. The sections are joined with a hesitant quaver figure, which is first heard in bar 19.
