Ravel’s TZIGANE is among the only concerto-like violin solos from the colorful rich Impressionist repertoire. This exotic showpiece is thoroughly infused with melodies and accompaniments in the style of Hungarian folk music, and Ravel composed the work with accompaniments for piano and for orchestra. Jeffrey Heisler’s brilliant transcription for soprano sax captures all the sparkle of Ravel’s violin writing and is fully compatible with both authentic versions, to allow optimum performance for saxophonists with either accompaniment. Heisler takes advantage of slap tongue and altissimo to create a dazzling showpiece, expanding the repertoire for the advanced saxophonist.
