Scott Joplin`s Solace

Scott Joplin`s Solace
Product Details
Product Details<p><strong>Scott Joplin repeatedly emphasised that ragtime should never be played fast.  This is particularly true of this splendid composition.  It is a slow Tango and should be played in a lovingly, romantic manner.  Any faster and the delicate melodies feel breathless and hurried.  In particular, do observe the pauses carefully.  <br /><br />Although written in 2/4 time, Solace really has a slow four beat rhythm, so count in 8th notes (quavers)</strong></p><p><strong>Solace can be played by any number of instruments from Trio upwards. <br /><br />For Trios, one Melody part plus Harmony 2 are essential plus a bass part.<br />For Quartets, cover Melody, Harmony 1 and Harmony 2  plus  a bass part.<br />If available, add additional Bass parts for a fuller sound.  For example, if you have two or more Baritone sax players, have one on each of the Tenor and Bass parts.<br />  <br />Try to keep a balance between Melody, Harmony and Bass.  <br /><br />Bass and Harmony parts must be played delicately and lightly to avoid drowning the melody.  Their job is to support  the melody.<br /><br />For Solace to work correctly in ensemble, at least one Tenor, or  Bass part must be present. </strong></p><p><strong>Parts available:</strong></p><p><strong>Melody:  Soprano Saxophone</strong></p><p><strong>Harmony 1: Soprano Saxophone</strong></p><p><strong>Harmony 2: Alto Saxophone<br /></strong></p><p><strong>Tenor part: Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone<br /></strong></p><p><strong>Bass: Baritone Saxophone, Bass Saxophone<br /></strong></p>
