A Debussy Saxophone Album

From the Publisher

This album has been compiled and arranged with the prime intention of providing saxophonists with the opportunity of playing a wide variety of music by Debussy. The pieces chosen are of moderate difficulty satisfying the needs of both student and professional alike. They also help to bridge the "repertoire gap" between the very elementary and the very advanced, as most of the material available for saxophone today seems to fall into these categories. These pieces are musically very satisfying as the style of Debussy lends itself so well to the saxophone. It is unfortunate that Debussy discovered the instrument so late in life as otherwise I am sure that he would have graced us with more original material. (James Rae)
