Karg-Elert: 25 Caprices, op. 153 for Solo Saxophone
Code: JP4053 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0342-1
25 Caprices by Sigfrid Karg-Elert (1877-1933) was
composed in 1929. The Caprices are arranged in
key signature order, rather than their level of
difficulty. Although tonal, the accidentals and unusual
implied harmonies, along with the technical demands, may
present some difficulties, but with slow, careful
practicing, the final result will be worth the effort.
Several pitch and rhythm errors and articulation
inconsistencies are found in the original publication.
Our new edition, edited by John Anderson, attempts to
correct or clarify these.
Karg-Elert's Opus 153 concludes with a 4-movement,
atonal Sonata for unaccompanied saxophone. This work is
available in a separate edition from Jeanne Music
