Scarista Breeze for alto saxophone and piano


This hypnotic piece was composed with the vastness of the Hebridean skies in mind. The lilting melody captures the sound of the sea as it rolls in to Scarista beach. Using the player’s air, the sound of the waves is evident at the beginning and the end of the piece. Whilst nodding to its Celtic roots, Scarista Breeze has a distinctly modern feel to its phrasing.


Range: D to palm key E

Approx: Grade 5.

Duration  2:30 mins

Audio download included with purchase.


A hypnotic piece capturing the emotion and isolation of the Scarista beach in the Outer Hebrides.  Great for working on using mordents in a folk style. The evocative melody while  nodding to its Celtic roots has a distinctly modern feel with its phrasing and the piano voicings used in the accompaniment.

This would suit players of around grade 5.
