Sonata - Soprano Sax and Piano

Price: $40.28

Description

Jindich Feld's Sonata for Soprano Saxophone and Piano is still regularly performed by virtuoso saxophonists. Composed in 1989, the Sonata is elaborate and quirky, and successfully exploits many extended techniques on the instrument, similar to the composer's Sonata for Alto Saxophone.

As reflected in his Sonata for Soprano Saxophone and Piano, Feld's style is deeply rooted in the Czech musical tradition, but he also integrated the main styles of 20th century Western music. Each of the three movements of the Sonata present different challenges, from fast, staccato, semiquaver flourishes to the lyrical, slurred passages. This Feld piece is highly virtuosic, yet an excellent and enjoyable performance for all advanced soprano saxophonists.

Born in Prague, Feld (1925-2007) studied violin and viola with his parents before studying at the Conservatory and Academy of Music of his native city. His compositions, predominantly instrumental, soon became popular, being performed all over the world.
