Eugène Bozza: Pièce Brève

Books | Alto Saxophone

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Eugène Bozza
Format: Sheet Music | Score

To this day, Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) remains one of the most prolific composers for wind instruments, despite being a violinist himself. His Pièce Brève for solo Saxophone is no exception to the composer's success.

During his studies at the Paris Conservatoire, Bozza won prizes for Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. He then conducted the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique and became Head of the Conservatoire in Valenciennes, whilst remaining a prominent composer. Composed in 1955, Bozza's Pièce Brève is to be played on the Alto Saxophone and is a virtuosic work, addressing advanced features including, complex rhythms, chromaticism, a wide range and articulation. As music educationalist, Paul Griffiths has written of Bozza's compositions, "his works reveal melodic fluency, elegance of structure and a consistently sensitive concern of instrumental capabilities."
