A jolly romp for soprano saxophone (or other treble instrument) and piano (or harp). Performance directions as follows:–- The saxophone part should be played in strict tempo throughout. The piano part has no time signatures, no bar-lines and only occasional rhythmic values (which are not specific, but merely approximate guides). It is intended that the pianist should follow the saxophone line (in the piano part), and play as accurately as possible using the rhythms implied by each note�s horizontal position in relation to the oboe. Where a note or chord in the piano is directly underneath a note in the saxophone part, the pianist should aim to play simultaneously with that saxophone note (however, the majority of the piano�s notes are not sounded together with the saxophone). The pianist should also try to avoid playing in any specific metre given by the saxophone (there is a temptation to fill in the gaps with quaver syncopations), unless the spacing of the notes indicates otherwise (i.e. for much of the piece there should be little sense of metre, and the pulse given by the saxophone (crotchet = 108) should for the most part be upset by the piano). It is suggested as preferable that both performers play from the same part, with the pianist turning the pages. However there is a separate saxophone part if required (although the unrelenting nature of the piece has meant that the page-turns in the saxophone part are a little awkward). In either case, the saxophonist should take great care entirely to ignore the piano throughout regardless (possible exception at G) � it is the duty of the piano to keep up with the saxophone.
