Boris Goes to Dublin - Alun Cook
Alto Saxophone and Wind Band

"Boris" has a challenging solo part and is written as an "audience friendly" showpiece for Alto Saxophone and Wind Band. The band parts are well cued as bands vary in size, and could be played by quite a small ensemble. If you have full band you may need to lighten the scoring in places. The solo part is a good Grade 8 (UK) standard. The band parts are not excessively difficult. It can also be found on this site as a concert piece with piano and in an arrangement for Saxophone Octet. The MP3 file has a "live" saxophonist playing with a synthesized accompaniment but it gives a good feel for the piece.

Also available with Piano Accompaniment, for Alto and Orchestra, and for Saxophone Octet
