Chamber Sonata by Brett M Mckern

score and parts

Alto saxophone, cello and organ in three movements:
I   Centratura c.5’00
II  Scherzo c.1’50
III Introduzione e Fuga c.4’10
The opening movement starts with each performer offstage, the saxophone and cello playing as they walk onto the stage. Their search for tonality and synchronicity, begins with just a few notes. A motive develops for each instrument; the cello begins with open strings, the organ part with a small diatonic cluster, and the three instruments eventually come together as an ensemble. Composed 2016

Date with Ginger, A by Linda Dalgliesh

Score and parts

For saxophone quartet - AATB (solo),  c.2'35 +
The "date with ginger" is a favourite snack - simply a fresh Medjoul date, pitted, and stuffed with a piece of preserved ginger. The concept of the sweet exterior hiding a zesty heart reminds me of the many Australian belly dancers I have met, and one friend in particular. "Butter wouldn't melt...!"

Dinner Party by Keyna Wilkins

Score and parts

Saxophone Orchestra, c.4'30.  Level of difficulty - 7th Grade and above.
In this piece the composer has tried to explore the harmonic possibilities of such homogenous sounding ensemble by using the analogy of a dinner party in which the guests begin to have a polite conversation, which descends into argument in which they are all shouting at once.  By the time they leave, however, they have found resolution. Musically the motifs are developed in an intuitive free-flowing manner, centering around G Minor.
Audio - Sydney Conservatorium Sax Orchestra (October 2012)
Composed 2012
