“The Nightingale” Alto Sax Duet and Piano

“The Nightingale” For Alto Sax Duet and Piano is in a gentle Barcarolle tempo and in ternary form. (also Clarinet duet, flute duet, flute and clarinet duet, and violin duet available)

I wanted the lilting tempo in the outer sections to have a medieval minor tone, to work with the contrasting major section in the middle.
I very much wanted it to be a sax duet rather than sax 1 and sax 2, so the parts are pretty equally divided. It is romantic in nature, but uses modes and has a few interesting harmonies.
It is placed at an early intermediate level, about associated board grade 4 (Range is 2 octaves D to D)- dotted quaver semiquaver is the most complicated rhythm), and would be very suitable for concerts, recitals, weddings as well as an incidental piece. There are 2 sax pages per part and the piano part has 6 pages- 5 minutes in length. 
The youtube link has the full score for you to assess suitability, and the price is for the full score and parts.
