After several years in preparation, a new urtext edition of the famous Glazunov Concerto in E-flat Major, Op. 109 is now available from the German publisher Baerenreiter!  What is an urtext edition?  An urtext edition of a work of classical music is a printed version intended to reproduce the original intention of the composer as exactly as possible, without any added or changed material.  An urtext edition will also specifically tell you what source material was used in creating the edition and include some historical and editorial information.  All of those requirements are met in the new Baerenreiter edition.  Order here.

Preparing for College Auditions

When it comes time for saxophonists to audition for college music department admission, many students arrive unprepared or poorly prepared.  Having listened to many college entrance auditions I've encountered two common problems:

  1. scales played poorly, with a limited range and fewer than the 12 majors scales performed;
  2. performing a piece that is too difficult for the player.

Students frequently ask me for music recommendations.  Most of the time I select from a well-worn list of standard classical saxophone music, both original and transcribed, that would be appropriate.  Now, for the student who has no assistance from another who knows the literature, or for the student who has no access to a private teacher to help prepare the audition, there is an excellent, comprehensive collection of materials that will satisfy the needs of most college/university auditions.
