SUMMERTIME MASH UP ADVANCED DUET

 

In this 3rd version of this  Saxophone duet I lovingly borrow some motifs from Stevie Wonder and intersperse them with George Gershwin's classic Summertime.

The arrangement starts in G minor, then Modulates to C minor and finishes in G# minor when the melody is recapitulated.

The Pdf is suitable for 2 saxophones of the same key: Bb or Eb

 

 SUMMERTIME SAXOPHNE DUET (2017 version)

In this 2017 arrangement of Summertime for 2 Saxophones I included some favourite phrases of some of my musical heroes - Stevie Wonder, Prince, Larry Adler and Gershwin himself - with great affection and gratitude.

The level is intermediate to advanced.

2 files included are included in the download:

1) The original 2017 arrangement heard in the Youtube Video in Ab minor

2) The same above arrangement transposed up to A Minor

(without the 5 sharp key signature)
