Books | Alto Saxophone

Catalogue No: AL23456
Composer: Henri Tomasi
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

Printemps by Henri Tomassi is a wind sextet for Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Horn and Bassoon. This book includes the score for each instrument and the conductor’s score. Lasting 9 and a half minutes, this melodious piece is divided into three main parts and finishes on a Scherzando section. These three pieces musically describe the flirting process of birds in Spring.

1. Réveil des oiseaux / Birds wake up
2. Chant d’amour / Love song
3. Danse des oiseaux / Dance of the birds 

This piece is very difficult to play for all instruments involved, but simultaneously really nice and challenging. Henri Tomasi also composed a variety of concerti for Alto Saxophone and for Trombone, as well as some ballades.
