A unique and challenging four movement work for sax quartet that explores contrasting musical styles. Sofia (Bulgaria) is based on the metric 9/8 rhythms found in Eastern European music; Waltz is a tribute to Cuban pianist Chucho Valdes including an optional improvisatory section for soprano sax and a free improv section; Monk-Tuno is a Latin tribute to jazz pianist and composer Thelonius Monk; the concluding Escape to Dreamland is an episodic montage with references to the other movements.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
