Plaisir d’amour arr. alto saxophone & piano

This music originates as a classical French art song which has over the years has been arranged and performed in many different styles and contexts. A tempo of just 43 dotted quarter notes to the the minute is used in the realisation although there a slight speeding up for the piu mosso section. There are just two ornaments which appear in the final section as a performance option whilst the acciaccaturas (crushed notes) do not sound in the realisation. This is an excellent piece to explore playing at a slow tempo. Listen to a number of recordings of performances particularly by singers to gain an understanding of how this music can be performed. A solo alto saxophone part is appended to the full score.
