Where Spirits & Demons Dance

Edition Notes

Composer's Note:

Where Spirits & Demons Dance was originally written for Saxophonia, a saxophone choir which evolved out of the National Youth Wind Orchestra, and was premiered by them at their debut concert in April 1995, at the Purcell Room.

The inspiration came from the haunting and sinister sounds of an old barrel-organ I heard in the Bohemian heart of Amsterdam. The picture I've portrayed of Amsterdam's street life is one of conflict between it's superficial charm and the sleazier undertones of the environment.

This arrangement of 'Demons' for saxophone & piano was completed a decade after composing the original piece and includes parts for both Eb and Bb saxophones.

Nigel Wood - November 2006

Where Spirits and Demons Dance was selected as the set piece for the 2007 Saxtet Publications Saxophone Prize held at Birmingham Conservatoire where it received it's first, second, third and fourth performances in a row!
