Sonatina, Op. 3, No. 1 (1802?)

Carl Maria von Weber (1786 – 1826)

SATB or AATB Saxophone Quartet

Sonatina, Op. 3 No. 1 by Carl Maria von Weber, arranged for saxophone quartet S/AATB. This sonatina is a good example of late classical/early romantic writing. Originally for piano four hands, the melodic and harmonic lines are clearly drawn and transfer to the saxophone quartet setting very well. The Alto 1 and 2 parts generally busy themselves with the melody while the tenor and bari are a little more interesting and full of scales, trills, and arpeggios. The transcription lowers the key from C major to E flat major. The Sonatina is scored for both SATB and AATB sax quartets.
