Product Details


Written in tribute to all mothers, but especially the composer's mother Florilyn, who died at the age of 90 in 2008, each of the four movements in this grade 3 suite may be performed independently of the others with excellent results. Movement 1 is a plaintive waltz with lush romantic harmonies. Movement 2 is a comedic interpolation featuring portions of two etudes by Muzio Clementi and the "tick-tick" sound of the typewriter. Conflict, reconciliation, resolution, and acceptance is the conveyed essence of movement 3. And with a reverent duet introduction, the final movement of Elégie à nos mères commemorates the end of Florilyn's long life. Arranged for saxophone quartet (SATBar).
