Hello Saxophone community! The topic of discussion is the hardest piece you have ever played. This can include any piece you have attempted to play or have played in the past as long as it was on a saxophone. Make sure to include the name of the piece along with who composed it. You can also include a piece you are currently learning!
So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.
EDIT: When the air rushes out of the octave openings, it hits against the pads, making an airy, thin sound. I think this effect is similar to what happens when you whistle, but bring a finger close to the opening of your lips, making a weakened, airy sound. What do I do?
Can someone please help me play in the lower register of the Alto Saxophone? I can only go to a low b.
Imagine yourself standing by the sidewalk. The sky darkens and drops of rain start to fall. You are holding an umbrella, standing still, and quietly listening to the tune sung by the rain drops as they one by one kiss the ground. You are soaking but you still wish for the rain to last forever and for you to stand still and quietly listen to the melody that came from above for eternity.

Beautiful Prelude to show that sometimes simplicity is the best option
Does anyone want any pieces for piano done or does anyone have any recommendations.
Hey guys new piece,
Hope you enjoy
Hey guys! New short piece I completed for solo piano. My first time composing. Let me know what you think! :)
I am working on my third piano sonata. What is so special about this sonata is that I dedicated it to Beethoven. So I am using components of Beethoven's style such as sudden dynamic changes with my melodies and harmony.
I am working on the first movement right now and so far I have this:
Introduction: Andante with octave tremolos in the right hand going down 2 octaves of the C minor scale and arpeggios in the left hand, piano until the forte chord at the end
Exposition: Allegro with lots of chords, forte ending on fortissimo chords
I only have a few measures of the Allegro section so far.
The Andante section sounds melancholy and it is supposed to represent the end of Beethoven's life. The Allegro section so far sounds dramatic and is supposed to represent me as a composer continuing down Beethoven's path as if I was Beethoven II and also how important Beethoven is as an influencing composer to me. C minor is a very fitting key for both of these emotions.
It's relatively easy... It's because for the past 10 years I've only focused on music theory for its "playing" usage. I've never considered composition but what can I say, sometimes you just feel a surge of emotions and you want it to manifest in the real world.
My first composition is called Davy Jones Theme and it´s my version of this piece that comes from the film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead´s Man´s Chest.
Hey I posted a song not too long ago, and i could really use some suggestions/tips. Thanks :)
Just uploaded my first ever piece on this website, and I would greatly appreciate some feedback to help me improve either this piece or my ability as a composer...
It's up on my profile, so if you have time please have a look and give me some constructive criticism!
Here is an updated score.
I was bored today so I decided to make this by ear. Idk how to get the first ending to extend past one measure, but I think it turned out well. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated (even negative feedback).
I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:
I would love some feedback on it. I have heard from another person that I kind of use the same rhythm over and over. I honestly didn't plan on changing the rhythm because nocturnes typically will have a triplet rhythm. And the rhythm of the melody I think is part of why it sounds so beautiful to me. Also it is Bb which is a key I associate with a moonlit night.
I composed it over 3 days. Anyway, what do you think?
Hey guys! This is the first time I ever wrote an atonal piece, so I would like some advice and critique!
