Bach & Beyond (part 1) for sax sextet by Nigel Wood This was written as a jazzy, slightly tongue-in cheek tribute for the 250th anniversary of Bach’s death (spot the quotes from seven of Bach’s most celebrated works). There is also a saxophone quartet version which was recorded by the Paragon Saxophone Quartet in 2003 as the title track on the ‘Bach & Beyond’ CD of works for saxophone quartets published by Saxtet Publications. The original version was for piano.
Played by the Birmingham pop-up Sax Ensemble.
Sally MacTaggart – soprano
