Product Description

•••••
Each of the three movements of this sonata for soprano saxophone and piano is influenced to a greater or lesser extent by the ragtime form and style. Although unlike some of the composer's compositions in his "after" series (which now include works written in the style of Vierne, Brahms, Glière and others, mainly for instruments that have little original romantic music), this work isn't necessarily intended to sound like Joplin. There is little doubt that the ghost of Joplin hovers over the piece, in at least a few spots, but it has been put through the filter of David DeBoor Canfield in his zaniest mood.

Duration: approximately 9 minutes

Note that there are 2 versions of this sonata - one for soprano saxophone and the other for alto saxophone. The version on this page is for soprano saxophone.
