Schwarzer Tänzer

saxophone quartet edition

Composed by: Nigel Wood
Genre: Contemporary


This is the original version of a piece that is currently on the Associated Board syllabus in its tenor/piano guise. The structure of this work is simply beautiful and Nigel Wood has managed to seamlessly blend many different ideas together. The opening is powerful and passionate. The title means black dancer and the piece is dedicated to a great friend of Saxtet's called Chris Boatwright. Chris was a ballet dancer and the flowing lines of the work's main themes are a tribute to his grace on the stage. This is a challenging work to play and would suit an advanced level group. There is also an excellent and preferable version for quintet.
