    Suppe - Beautiful Galatea Overature - CMB Sax Choir

    Here is another fun piece I just had put for up for saxophone ensemble, the ever popular Suppe "Beautiful Galatae Overture".

    It is set using Finale 2008 for sopranino (JABB), 2 soprano, 3 alto, 2 tenor, 2 baritone and bass saxophones from the CMB library.

    Nice job on adapting this overture, Gary -- as always!

    Though a prolific writer of operettas, von Suppé isn't heard much
    today... thanks for this one.

    My best,

    David,

    Thanks for your comments as always. Yes Suppe is not heard as much as i would like either. Maybe we can provide a new outlet here!

    Hi there Gary!
    9 Saxophones!!!!!!!!! - what an amazingly versatile instrument, to be able to cover all the bases like this! I still don't know how you get them all to sing like angels though! A lovely piece, thank you for sharing!
    Best regards,

    Hi sd cisco,

    Thanks for the post and your kind comments. I have been sharpening my skills on the saxophone arranging for several years now. And you are correct, they are versatile and the family provides the full orchestral range to work with. I have a number of other posts to this formum that might interest you as well.

    Thanks for your kind comments and colorful comparison! I think that saxophone ensembles have so much more to offer that is imagined. Glad that the CMB is such an excellent platform from which to prove the point.

    Hi, Gary - Seems like it's been awhile since I've partaken of one of your sax ensemble pieces, so I'm very glad to have clicked on this one this afternoon.

    Very pleasant, fun piece of music indeed - Thoroughly enjoyable. And the unusual sound you get from your process lent a nice fantasy aspect to the music.

    Nice stuff - Thanks, Gary.

    Randy,

    Thanks for your kind comments. It is a fun piece and deserving of a larger performance audiance. I was busy working on the Symphonie Fantastique for about 2 months, a massive undertaking. I posted it to the forum about 2 weeks ago. You should check it out.
