This is the second of my arrangements for saxophone quartet (2 altos, tenor, and baritone sax).

Johann Strauss (1825-1899), the "Waltz King" also wrote numerous polkas, galops, schottisches, and quadrilles, in addition to his 13 operettas. This was written in collaboration with his talented brother Josef. The "Pizzicato" Polka (as its name suggests) was originally written for string orchestra. Here it is arranged for saxophone quartet (two E-flat also saxophones, a B-flat tenor sax,and an E-flat baritone sax).

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
