Wonderful veriations on the theme and a wonderful understanding of the saxophone. Orchestraters take a look and learn, there a very deep mine of saxophone sounds and combinations. A joy to hear and contimplate. Thank you Marillia for it. Sincerely, Billy VerPlanck 6-3-06 Clifton, NJ USA

I simply must write again. I have invited many people to enjoy your site. The arrangements are always interesting. As a member of a non professional sax quartet I appreciate the free scores immensely. Looney Tunes, Gin Fizz and others are fun to play and fun sounding. This generosity that you display in the amount of arrangements you are providing for the sax quartet is fantastic. Thanks again, Ron from NewHanpshire, USA

I hope you can understand English. I play soprano saxophone in an amateur saxophone quartet. We have had the pleasure of trying a few of your arrangements. My personal favorite is "I Got Rhythm". We have a lot of fun playing it. The name of our quartet is "SaxAppeal". We are from Nova Scotia Canada and have been playing together for about 4 years. Thanks for sharing your music. Cheers Kelly

A member of our quartet (Northeast Texas Saxophone Quartet) found your excellent website. We started with Looney Tunes and West Side Story and are reading others. Great work and thanks! Two side notes: One to Pavel, who referred us in his posting to the recording of the Jerusalem Saxophone Quartet. Thank you for that! In the last movement, I noticed the group shouted the word "Mambo" or something to that effect. It's been a long time since I saw West Side Story and if you read this, please confirm what the word is. I like it, and I assume it is true to the original. Second, I confess we edited Looney Tunes a bit. Having grown up watching Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and friends, we changed the rhythm and phrasing in the 9th and 10th and the 13th and 14th measures after E. Instead of straight eighth notes, we made them dotted eighth followed by sixteenths, and slurred them to the first eighth note in the following measure. Also, we switched the final long note between the soprano and alto parts so that the final concert F (fifth of the chord) is played by the soprano and the root (tonic) is played by the alto. Seems to work better. I hope you don't mind! Keep up the great work and thanks again!

Bravo pour ce travail fantastique! Les choix des morceaux arrangés (ou compos) sont pertinents. Outre le talent musical, ce désir de partager et de mettre à disposition son travail est admirable. Encore toutes mes félicitations!!!
