Boris Goes to Dublin - Alun Cook
Alto Saxophone and Orchestra

"Boris" is a mini concerto with a challenging solo part. Written as an "audience friendly" showpiece, originally for Alto Saxophone and Wind Band, its popularity has led to this new incarnation for soloist and orchestra. It can also be found on this site as a concert piece with piano and in an arrangement for Saxophone Octet. Do listen to the MP3 file rather than relying on the scorched version. The Cor Anglais part is optional (cued) and separate parts for timpani and xylophone are provided as well as the combined percussion part. If you listen to the MP3 version for Wind Band you can hear a "live" saxophonist playing with a synthesized accompaniment.

Also available with Piano Accompaniment, for Alto and Wind Band, and for Saxophone Octet
