Fantasy Piece, Romance, Op 2, No. 1

Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

Soprano Sax Solo or Alto Sax Solo with Piano

Romance Op. 2, No. 1 by Carl Nielsen arranged for Soprano Sax Solo or Alto Sax Solo. Carl Nielsen‘s Romance is a well-loved and frequently performed oboe work. This transcription is for soprano or alto saxophone solo with piano. In program notes Nielsen wrote: “…the piece gives the oboe the opportunity to sing out its notes quite as beautifully as this instrument can.” – excellent directions for the saxophonist as well.

Romance, Op 2, No. 1 is the second of Two Fantasy Pieces for oboe and piano. Later Nielsen transcribed the work for oboe and orchestra. This transcription for saxophone with piano is in the original key and includes parts for soprano sax solo or alto sax solo. It works well for tenor or baritone sax also. The saxophone part in the piano score is at concert pitch.
