As far as adjusting and regulating, everything made sense, the mechanisms are well thought out, great quality construction. The left hand thumbrest looked really cheesy, a plain brass nubbin, so I took it off. It looks really nice…check out the pictures. This sax comes with brass neckplug pictured and case. Case is in good condition These are excellent saxophones, with great voices, intonation, and a world of new possibilities.
Great quality throughout. Glazonov was right, you cannot get more than four notes at a time. And only five with a wind quintet or brass quintet. That is a limitation to a composer writing in the string medium for his creative life! But Glazonov, as an expert composer, managed to do quite well with his saxophone quartet. As for me, I love the string quartet but feel it would be even better as a string orchestra, complete with double bass.
That preference does not interfere with the excellence of the string quartet repertoire or medium! Paul Cohen. Re: A quartet is not the optimal saxophone chamber music format Full disclosure: I am biased. I like saxophone ensembles big enough to include a bass sax, because I love to play bass.
But larger sax ensembles, when they are played by great players who are in tune, can be thrilling, whether they are oriented towards classical music or Lets Twist Again - Various - 21 Golden Memories commercial music.
For classical music, there are youtube videos of large Japanese saxophone ensembles, some with dozens of players. If this thread continues, I will post some links.

So I guess I would propose the quintet, ideally with the possibility of two of any of the upper parts - i. Then, where do we find the music? I have made arrangements of a some 5-part madrigals Holborne, Monteverdi, Gibbons, Tomkinsand these work well for saxophone quintet, but that's rather specialised. Has anyone tried arranging wind quintets for saxophones?
Other sources of quintet music? Re: A quartet is not the optimal saxophone chamber music format I Venus - Butthole Surfers - Weird Revolution agree more with the OP.
I actually actively dislike the Sax Quartet sound with a few exceptionsdespite having been a member of two professional quartets during my career.
I much prefer the sound of a larger group, 8 to 10 players is a good The Days Of 49 - The Leblanc Fine Arts Saxophone Quartet - Music For Saxophone Quartet - Music Minu big enough to bring about a satisfying homogeny and power, small enough for individual voices to be heard.

Re: A quartet is not the optimal saxophone chamber music format Well it's down to preference, isn't it?
A quartet is a particular sound and one that is an exercise in using 4 voices. Adding more voices means you like That's like saying you dislike jazz trios because you like 4 parts instead of three.
I'm not sure that preference makes it "ideal" or "not ideal. That doesn't mean I dislike larger ensembles Originally Posted by Paul Cohen. Shipping is free for The Days Of 49 - The Leblanc Fine Arts Saxophone Quartet - Music For Saxophone Quartet - Music Minu lower 48 states.
