    Does what it says on the tin basicaly. These are also good simply to play individually for practice or pleasure and are well printed and laid out on the page.

  • March 30, 2007 Wonderful Bach for The Sax

    Bach's Two-Part Inventions were written for keyboard students to teach independence of the two hands. In this transcription we get two wonderful musical lines for the Sax which can be played by themselves or in duet. Relatively easy at the start they progress to somewhat more challenging pieces...

    by the end. Greatly appreciated is an introductory page that spells out how to execute Bach's trills, mordents, etc. Quite a bit more challenging would be "Six Suites for Violoncello Solo" for Sax.
