Format : Sheet music
German baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) was a self-taught multi-instrumentalist becoming a composer against his family's wishes. However his musical career saw him hold important positions and to this day he remains a major composer. His sublime Sonata in C minor for Oboe is superbly arranged for Alto Saxophone by contemporary French saxophonist Jean-Marie Londeix. Telemann composed his Sonata in C minor for Oboe whilst in service to the German Royal family. During this time he composed a wealth of instrumental music including Sonatas and Concertos. Londeix's arrangementfor Saxophone of Telemann's Sonata includes adaptions for the instrument such as dynamics phrase marks performance and tempo directions articulation and breath marks making the baroque genre accessible to the Saxophone a relatively modern instrument.
