Canción Para Un ClarinetistaCanción para un clarinetista - this song for a clarinetist is dedicated to one of the most outstanding clarinetists and pedagogues in Cuba, a graduate of the National School of Art in Havana / Cuba as well as the Conservatoire Supérieure de Paris / France. In this piece, the French chanson fuses with the genre of the Cuban contradanza, or to be more exact, with the spirit of this very style, which is the reason why I apply the term tempo de contradanza in this case. This tempo de contradanza refers to a kind of small harmonic cycle which embraces the spirit of an improvised solo and finishes this eight-bar fragment with the intention of a jazz-style riff.In the sequel, it returns to tempo primo resuming the opening pace of the piece and finally ends in a cadence to be executed by the instrumentalist according to his or her taste.Nombre de pages :12
Pequena Suite para CuatroPequeña Suite para Cuatro (A Little Suite for Four) was composed for, and dedicated to, the saxophone quartet Arsis domiciled in the Cuban city of Pinar del Rio and directed by saxophone teacher Daniel Ayerbe, a graduate from the Havana-based Escuela Nacional de Arte (National School of the Arts). After 20 years of inexhaustible and fruitful work, the quartet´s repertoire comprises everything from classical to Latin American and Cuban music. The first movement named Tuning features a melody written in B minor, which is to be played in unison, whereas the baritone and the tenor both reinforce the principal tuning note, in other words concert pitch A. In Dentro de un Círculo (Within a Circle), which is the title of the second movement, a leitmotiv is being reproduced: The main melody as well as variations on the latter making use of jazz phrases are repeated several times with the four instruments taking turns in assuming the main as well as the supporting voices. The correct execution of the different accents is of utmost importance. As its name suggests, the third movement called Relax is based on a ballad-like melody where the soprano and the baritone saxophones are having a pleasant conversation. Measure 25 is rhythmically complex: The baritone plays a son tumbao whereas the other saxophones allude to an Afro-style rhythm, playing in sextuplets and finally returning to tempo primo to close in a classic 2-3 son clave. The fourth and final movement, Montando en un Carrusel (Riding on the Merry-Go-Round), goes on a joyful melodic ride passing through all the saxophones one after the other; the instruments - like in the second movement - again take turns in performing the main and the supporting voices. Careful attention should be paid to the correct execution of the different accents on syncopations and off-beats, especially as of measure 39. Of equal importance is the accurate performance of the Cuban cinquillo appearing in measure 37 in the tenor, in measure 45 in the alto, in measure 47 in the soprano and finally in measures 51 to 52 in all four instruments. I hope the big family of saxophone players will take pleasure in this suite!

DescriptionEduardo Sainz de la Maza was both a successful guitarist and important composer. Although well known for his arrangements of Spanish folk songs, it is his original works which are seen as most significant today. His musical language is described as eclectic, combining impressionistic influences with Spanish musical traditions. Jazz was also an influence, although much of his music is described as intimate and lyrical, as depicted by Platero y yo Suiteone of the most notable compositions for the guitar of the 20th Century, within this unique collection of works.
