Waltzing Soprillda


This witty and imaginative take on Australia's signature waltz was originally written for Nigel Wood and his soprillo. (It is one of the first pieces to be published for soprillo saxophone.

In it, the agile little piccolo sax (soprillo) revisits 'Matilda' in the styles of Ravel, Schubert, Beethoven, Sousa, swing and more, and she is (of course!) serenaded with didgeridoo fanfares.

Edition Notes

Although written for the unique soprillo and piano (Nigel is one of the very few soprilloists in the UK), this sax and piano version can be played on any Bb or Eb saxophone allowing this antipodean gem to get the wider airing it deserves.

It has also been arranged for the full forces of the National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain (NSC) who performed it with Nigel as the soloist at the 2006 World Saxophone Congress in Slovenia. To find out more about the soprillo sax visit

There is also a Wind Band arrangement of Waltzing Soprillda (but it's called Matilda Goes Walkabout!) available from Philip Buttall's PRB Music. The soprillo, Bb or Eb solo parts are compatible with this arrangement.
