From the arranger: During my time as a member of the saxophone quartet In toto, the quartet had the opportunity to perform at award nights, corporate dinners, graduation ceremonies, garden parties, and various other functions. The pieces selected for Classical Collection are just a few of the most popular pieces requested by our audiences. The pieces are intended to be accessible to both performer and listener. My arrangements should present few technical difficulties as I’ve adapted the music where necessary to be saxophone friendly.
