Schwarzer Tänzer

saxophone & piano edition

Composed by: Nigel Wood
Genre: Contemporary


There are strong influences of Weil throughout and there are challenges for both the pianist and the saxophonist. Strong rhythms prevail and the melody has character. It is good to see this featuring on the new ABRSM grade 8 saxophone list. I'm sure that candidates will enjoy the challenge and style. If you have the 'scorch' plug-in on your computer you can view and hear a sample of the music.
Carol Taylor, Clarinet and Saxophone Magazine, Winter 2001

Appearing on both the Associated Board and Guildhall syllabuses, this is a single-movement work for saxophone and piano. It is a lively piece, full of rhythmic insistence based on a motif played in the piano introduction which recurs throughout the work. A piano score is supplied along with versions for both E flat and B flat saxophones and would be suitable for performers of a moderately high standard.
