Gavotte, Opus 9, No. 2

Cecile Chaminade (1857 – 1944)

SATB Saxophone Quartet

Gavotte, Opus 9, No. 2 by Cecile Chaminade arranged for SATB Saxophone Quartet. This is one of the many short piano works written by Cecile Chaminade. It has a lively melody and rhythmic drive that makes it great fun to play. The SATB saxophone quartet transcription remains in the original key of A minor. Although the tune usually stays in the top voices, all four parts are well balanced and interesting to play.

Gavotte, Opus 9, No. 2, by Chaminade for SATB Saxophone Quartet

One of the few female composers of her time to achieve great popularity, Cecile Chaminade was a child prodigy. She began playing the piano very early, and her first compositions date from the age of eight. Her father wouldn’t allow her to attend the Paris Conservatoire, but she did work privately with many well-known instructors. She gave her first public recital at age 18 and from then on appeared frequently as a pianist all over the world, often playing her own music.
