Tyne Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano

£14.99

Approved Exam Music

Recommended for the following exam grade(s):

ABRSM exam syllabus

From the Publisher

The Tyne starts its life as two rivers, hence the title of the first movement: The Sources.
These converge to form the River Tyne at an appropriately named location west of Hexham called Watersmeet, the title of the second movement. The final movement is Sandgate Jig named after Sandgate, a street near Newcastle quayside where many keelmen used to live. Premiered at the Dartington International Summer School 2011, this sonata would make a fine choice for the concert programme for the more advanced player.
