The Lone Ar-ranger Goes Sax Mad!

saxophone ensemble edition

Composed by: Rossini / Various

Genre: Classical


This looks really COOL!!!!

This is a cracking version of the Lone Ar-ranger and because the tunes are spread throughout the ensemble the fun is guessing who's going to pop up next with The Drunken Sailor. (I'd be interested to read answers to that question in the Clarinet & Saxophone letters column - would certainly make a pleasant change from what brand of sandpaper one uses on their Vandorens). Due to the sheer number of parts, balance is really important otherwise the tunes, which can come every two bars, can get lost in the mix. Overall this is a rip-roaring laugh and a guaranteed audience winner.

This is an amazing song, although it sounds better and is much harder played faster.
