Something Borrowed, Something Blue

by Andrew Kovaleski and Caleb Miller



Something Borrowed, Something Blue is an EP featuring popular works for the saxophone by Robert Schumann and Robert Muczynski. It features saxophonist Andrew Kovaleski and pianist Caleb Miller.

The first work, Three Romances, was written by Robert Schumann for oboe and piano in 1849. It was "borrowed" by saxophonist Frederick Hemke in 1972 and arranged for alto saxophone and piano. The Three Romances have been arranged by any number of people for any number of instruments, including flute and clarinet, and they are a popular set for the advancing student who is focusing on lyricism and a beautiful tone.

Robert Muczynski's Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano was also written in 1972. With a clear influence from American popular music, this "blue" work is one of the most exciting and gripping of the classical saxophonist's repertoire. Allegedly, it was penned under the name "Desert Sketches", but was modified to the more normative title of "Sonata" at the request of the publisher.
