Updating this group!

I know that this group isn't very active but I think it should be!

If we updated the profile image and background we could attract alot more newer people to share and express their ideas on saxophone.

I think its important also, to change the name to be inclusive to also military band saxophone. Military band is a very sepecial place in the history of the saxophone and such we should engage in that part of our history aswell!

CONCIERTO DE ARANJUEZ BY RODRIGO, FULL ORCHESTRA

 
https://musescore.com/user/29306356/scores/5324811
 Joaquin Rodrigo composed Concierto de Aranjuez in Paris, rue Saint Jacques, 159, in 1939, for Regina Sainz de la maza. Allegro con spirito is the first movement from Concierto de Aranjuez.

This is a work of transcription and I made several adjustments to orchestration without regard to mood and character.

great hope that this work will inspire other classical guitar and orchestra works
