Unaccompanied Alto or Tenor Saxophone Duet                                                     PREVIEW ON YOUTUBE

 

Written for 2nd or 3rd year saxophone students, this arrangement of one of Chopin's most popular compositions is transposed  from the original E major to the more sax-friendly key of (written) F major (concert Ab for altos or concert Eb for tenors). Chopin himself is said to have considered this to be his loveliest melody. The entire duet can be played from the score without turning a page, so individual parts are not needed.

 

Also available for flute duet and clarinet duet.
