- Five short pieces of about 2-4 minutes each, for soprano / alto and tenor saxophone, of great charm and musical enjoyment.
- Originally composed for the soundtrack of the film Alla fine della notte by Salvatore Piscitelli in 2003.
- The pieces fully exploit the technical possibilities of the two saxes and some explore the high register of the instrument.
- Excellent test bed for the technical study of complex rhythms.
- Effective concert pieces.
- Intermediate-advanced executive level.
As a saxophone teacher at the Conservatory, the author noted a certain lack of compositions for two saxes both in teaching and in the concert repertoire. With these five dances he therefore contributes to fill this gap.
- contemporary music performers
- saxophone teachers
- Conservatory saxophone students
