Saxophone

Leo Bachmann
Schwarzer Schatten (1993)
for contrabass saxophone
Uniform quarter tone sequences stumble through a walking-bass-like line. On reaching the end, they loop - this time accompanied by the players voice sung into the instrument - and again stagger through.

Hommage à – Adolf Wölfli (2013)
for flute or alto saxophone or bassoon
Hommage à – Adolf Wölfli, a piece for soloist, exists in three versions: for flute, for alto saxophone and for bassoon. Because the three versions differ in their musical material (not counting the transposition) they each represent a kind of variation - comparable to a single object under different lighting conditions. When two or even all three versions are performed at the same concert, they should not be performed in immediate succession and always from high to low (that is to say alto saxophone and bassoon always comes after flute, bassoon always after alto saxophone).

The sounds and differences in articulation result from the use of different mouthpieces or reeds. Through the further use of a variety of playing techniques (tooth tone, high register, ff in the low register, different slaps etc.) they become the central focus of the piece itself.

Dieter Ammann
d'accord(s) (2004)
for 2 alto saxophones
The title has two meanings:
On one hand side, the material for the pitch is derived mainly from parallel chords which have been placed horizontally to build up the melodic lines. (d'accords = in the sense of originating from chords).
On the other hand side, there are textures where both instruments play consensually, in substantial accord, together. This leads up to (mostly fast) homorhythmical passages.

Mandorla (1998-2001)
for soprano saxophone solo
'Mandorla' for soprano saxophone is a transcription of the identically named piano piece created in Sydney in 1998. Although some liberties have been taken with the saxophone version when compared to the version for piano, many characteristics of the original version have been preserved. The structure of the piece, based on the almond-shaped halo (mandorla), is largely determined by the (holy) numbers 3 and 7, complimented by the numbers 8 (mandorla) and 12 (total number of tones in the chromatic scale). A musical reference to the medieval mandorla form is found in the rapid, melodic phrases of the upper voice, which pertains to characteristics of the medieval two-voice spiritual song (organum).

Tartarelischer Tanz I (1995)

'Tartarelischer Tanz' comes from the Greek 'Tartaros' - the underworld where the souls of the dead repose in a happy and trouble less half state of being. Flittering 1/8 notes, only just audible as sound, build a spooky pulse which is animated in an irrational way by firmly pushed counter accents. (P.B.)

Die chemischen Elemente (2008)
for flute, saxophone and vibraphone
The structure and course of this piece is based on the periodic table of chemical elements. The three instruments represent specific groups of elements within the seven periods of the periodic system (metals, transition metals, non-metals, noble gasses). Small variations in playing technique and "plasticity" represent the chemical properties of each single element in one-bar 5/4 "portraits", which are linked to form a suspended tonal stream.

aufflackern und verlöschen (1997)
for tenor saxophone
Eight elements are gradually built up and again dismantled. Within this simple complete-form occur numerous momentary flares and douses. This work uses polyphonics, the fingerings of which are notated and extensively extracted from Daniel Kientzy’s "Les sons multiples aux saxophones".

Balz Trümpy
An Florestan und Eusebius (2010-2011)
Duos and trios
for saxophone (soprano, baritone), trombone and piano
In December 2010, I held a lecture on polyphony in the music of Schumann. This event led me to perform the complete piano works by this composer, who has remained dear to me since childhood. My composing has been influenced on a subliminal level by Schuhmann's sound meshes and quirky-fantastical lines. I became accutely aware of this fact while working on my piece for the trio Weiss-Svoboda-Henneberger. Since the content of the three main pieces ("Rezitativ und Arioso" for trombone and piano, "Lied" for saxophone and piano as well as "Mit Leidenschaft" for the trio) turned out to be rather Schumannian, I decided to dedicate it to the two main characters of the circle of the Davidsbündler (League of David).

"Pierrot, à table !" ou le souper du poète (2003)
for percussion, accordion, saxophone, horn and piano
The percussionist plays both a principal and theatrical role performing on a table. The remaining instruments are, for the most, independent of one another; the piano is placed at the far-end of the scene. The sounds produced on the table are amplified.

Max E. Keller
nel pomeriggio (2006)
for baritone saxophone and string quartet
A comfortable afternoon in a dusty café: as in times past, a string quartet plays a waltz that nobody listens to, a never-ending, continuously repetitive violin melody and an almost imperceptibly shifting accompaniment. Added to this is a completely inappropriate baritone saxophone - sometimes blending in, sometimes detached and sometimes obstinately defiant. Suddenly a bang! And everything collapses into shadowy ruins.

12-06-07 (2007)
for soprano, oboe, alto saxophone, horn and viola
A text about statistically the most frequent causes of death in Switzerland takes its course and is interspersed by ten extremely varied newsflashes from real life, all of them objets trouvés from two daily newspaper of 12th June, 2007. The statistical information is set to music in a recitative manner with very few, primarily sustained notes. This is in contrast to the ten newsflashes whose music is composed with lively movements and a tangible pulse in various structures. The somewhat macabre text montage reflects the apparent phenomenon of the sometimes-grotesque contrast of various themes and texts, which seems to magically attract humans.

Max E. Keller
"Fünf Improvisationsmodelle für Jugendliche" sowie "In Regen, Blitz und Donner" (2008)
for youths with any instruments (including everyday objects and carnival market instruments) + 2 saxophones and violoncello
The improvisational models "Kartenspiel", "Zündschnur", "Sonntagnachmittag", "Wasserfall" and "Gewitter" are first and foremost to be understood as individual concepts. Duration and instrumentation remain open. The pieces can be realised using normal instruments or everyday objects (plastic bags, paper, pan lids, table tops, pieces of wood, pieces of metal, cutlery, crockery etc.). "Wasserfall" and "Kartenspiel" are possible exceptions as the graphics require pitch and pitch modulation, but even this can be realised using carnival market instruments, lotus flutes or the voice as well as conventional instruments. "Gewitter" can also be the framework of a whole form: One of the other concepts can be played during a stop under a balcony etc..
"In Regen, Blitz und Donner" is ultimately a through-composed version of the preceding possibility where three further instruments are added.

accent - figure - layer (2008)
A project between improvisation and composition
for bass clarinet/tenor saxophone, percussion, piano, violin, viola and double bass
The wide scope between improvisation and composition is calibrated. There are, however, no long notated passages but form sequences, short notated phrases as starting points, verbal instructions and graphics - right through to improvisation as one extreme. The musical material is based on the archetypal elements 'accent', 'figure' and 'layer' as mentioned in the title. The through-composed parts "unione e tremolo" for violin and viola (movement II) and the violin solo "NONONONO" (movement VII) are inserted between the six movements as the other extreme.

Wiederkehr und Veränderung (2013)
for soprano saxophone, trombone and accordion
Wiederkehr (repetition) and Veränderung (variation) are archetypes of music, and perhaps even of life itself. A series of four basic structures are repeated four times, whereby the duration each time varies enormously, as does the characteristic of each of the basic models. Two of the four basic structures touch on repetition in their internal anatomy. The third basic structure is puzzle-like in its construction, whereby all three instruments repeat the same six elements several times and overlap. On another level, breathing/blowing - an existential basis of life - also plays an important part in this "wind trio".
