Suite for Saxophones

Igor Stravinsky (1882 – 1971)

Saxophone Quintet SAATB

Suite for Saxophones based on piano music of Igor Stravinsky, arranged for saxophone quintet SAATB. Between 1915 and 1917, as an amusement for his two children, Stravinsky wrote a series of eight easy piano duets based on a variety of dance forms. Later, he orchestrated the pieces for small orchestra and arranged them into suites of four movements each. The results are outrageous, witty, and utterly charming. As always, Stravinsky outdoes himself in the inventiveness of his orchestrations, which are filled with unusual instrumental juxtapositions and surprising changes in rhythm and texture. Some of those surprising changes and textures are evident in the arrangement for saxophone quintet.

The Suite for Saxophones includes the following movements:

  1. March, from Three Easy Pieces, 1915
  2. Andante, from Five Easy Pieces, 1917
  3. Balalaika, from Five Easy Pieces, 1917
  4. Galop, from Five Easy Pieces, 1917

This arrangement is for SAATB Saxophone Quintet.
