    Beethoven - Sym. No 3, Scherzo for CMB Sax Ensemble

    The Beethoven Symphony No. 3 contains the wonder Scherzo movements. An animated, joyous work that set the feet a tapping. The opening, primailry strings and winds and a wonderful brass interlude where the french horns play a stately hearld, before turning to the opening theme to the end of the work.

    Here I have set the piece using the CMB saxophones and the JABB sopranino (Sop SSAAATTBBs).

    Enjoy.

    I enjoyed this arrangement.

    I was wondering about the line up of the instruments. I searched for saxophone ensembles and found mostly quartets.

    I'm sure they and audiences will appreciate the work you put into this piece and others.

    Phil,

    I agree that for the bulk of saxophone arrangements they tend to be quartets. However, there are a number of larger ensembles, some specifically set up as chamber orchestra that can eaily handle this type of music as it is arranged. Having the CMB saxophones to validate the arrangement is a great help to me.
