Souvenir de Charcigny is an original work written for alto saxophone and piano for students in grde 3-4.
This work is in 3 parts. It begins with a nostalgic melody in F Major and approaches simple rhythms allowing to work on the conduct of the phrases and the support of the air column.
A short playful cadenza introduces a light, bouncy dance that contrasts with the first part both in character and technique.
Ideal for an exam, this composition uses almost the entire register of the saxophone (low Bb to high F), the main articulations and nuances to be acquired at the end of rade 3, as well as the varied rhythms that are acquired at this level.
Very musical, this work will enchant the students while being a composition which will make it possible to approach a second cyclenext grade in all confidence.
