Product Description

The "Trio after Brahms" for alto saxophone, violin and piano is another work in the composer's continuing series of original romantic pieces for instruments for which there was little written during the lifetime of the great romantic composers. His earlier work in this vein, "Concerto after Gliere," has achieved within a short time of its premiere wide performance among saxophonists who were looking for such works. Canfield, in his "Trio after Brahms," has not quoted anything from Brahms' own output, but there are undoubtedly phrases, chord sequences and other such things that could be found somewhere in the music of this composer. Nor did Canfield worry too much about the places in the piece that Brahms would not have written, especially the rather wild harmonic shifts in the final movement. Canfield did not want to completely suppress his own musical voice, and consequently left some of his own "musical fingerprints" in the work. The work is in the usual four-movement format that Brahms used. Duration approximately 23 minutes.
