Danse Noble (1902)

Émile Paladilhe (1844 – 1926)

Saxophone Trio ATB

Danse Noble by Emile Paladilhe arranged for ATB saxophone trio. Danse Noble is an elegant little piece that began life as a work for piano. The alto and tenor saxes trade melody and counter melody statements while the bari sax provides a quiet bass line. The arrangement for saxophone trio is raised one semi-tone from the original key of A to B flat. Moderate tempo in 3/4 time with a middle section slightly faster and in the parallel minor. The parts are very independent. A good choice for an intermediate group of players.

Danse Noble by Émile Paladilhe for Saxophone Trio ATB | SAXpressThe late 19th century French composer Émile Paladilhe is mostly forgotten today but in his time was well respected and admired. His works were performed throughout the concert halls and opera stages of Europe. Today singers remember him for a few of songs and oboists for his “Solo for Oboe” also known as “Concertante”. Sax players may know that piece too. A transcription is included in the widely available Concert and Contest Collection for Alto Saxophone.
