Trio Sonata in C
Johann Georg Linike (1680-1737?)
Saxophone Trio, any three saxophones
Trio Sonata in C by Johann Georg Linike, arranged for saxophone trio, is a pleasant little work by the mostly unknown German Baroque composer Johann Georg Linike. Although titled “Trio Sonata in C”, it does not follow the typical format of a baroque trio sonata. Each movement is quite short – think of it as a trio sonata in miniature. Together, all three movements take less than five minutes to perform. Regardless of its length it is well suited for saxophone trio.
This arrangement includes the following parts:
- 1st part for Soprano or Alto Saxophone
- 2nd part for Soprano or Alto Saxophone
- 3rd part for Tenor, Baritone, or Bass Saxophone
First, second, and bass parts are included for both E flat and B flat saxophones to give you maximum flexibility in your ensemble. The parts may be combined as desired. The B flat bass part is intended for bass sax but may be played on tenor, taking the part down an octave where practical.
- The range for each saxophone part is shown below.
