AFRICAN SUITE

for soprano saxophone and percussion



The original version of AFRICAN SUITE was written for VIOLIN AND PERCUSSION in 1992. In 2010 the composer wrote a version for VIOLONCELLO AND PERCUSSION .

In AFRICAN SUITE for soprano saxophone and percussion (2007) two instruments, which represent two different cultures too, are confronted with each other.

The work is a mixture of Western melodies and African rhythm.

By the use of a rhythmical ostinato pattern with changing measures and by placing erratic rhythmical accents in a steady metre, this work has a very inciting character.
