Reviews

A lovely, romantic tune - the composer had intended to write a song with lyrics but in the end felt words to be superfluous - a brilliant decision as the vocal-like qualities of the convey his feelings far more instantaneously than words ever could. (Grade 5)
Music News, Wood Wind & Reed, May 2002

Many of you will know Dave McGarry for his lovely work Dreams of You. This is a straightforward ballad around grade five standard although the altissimo ossia sections would make the work considerably harder. It has a bluesy feel to it and would appeal to many saxophone students. The piano part would be playable by many teachers (not me though!) and the piece would make a nice stepping stone to the more difficult Dreams of You.
