Fall 2010 Recital: Tribute to a Teacher

December 5, 2010, Tabor Space

Performers of Tribute to a Teacher

I inherited two crates of mostly saxophone music from Rich Briglia’s estate. Five of my students and 14 musician friends of Rich Briglia performed music from Rich’s music library. We heard clarinet quartets, saxophone septets, sax trios, even mixed duos (clarinet and alto sax)!

Davis, Peter, Mary EllenMusic heard in this recital includes:

  • Shortnin’ Bread – clarinet duet
  • Greensleeves – sax trio
  • Shadows of the Night, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – clarinet trios
  • Eastern Song, Tango – clarinet and alto sax duets
  • New York, New York – sax quartet
  • Rondo, Tyrolean Dance – clarinet and alto sax duets
  • Cool Saints – sax quartet with rhythm section
  • Over The Rainbow, Bach Goes To Town: Prelude & Fugue in Swing – clarinet quartet
  • Lucky Seven by Lennie Niehaus – sax septet with rhythm section
  • Turkey in The Straw – sax quartet

This is a compilation video of all the music from the recital. The video player below contains the complete video for each ensemble. Enjoy!

  1. I am a high school student from Avon Indiana in the saxophone ensemble there. If anyone knows where to get the score for the turkey in the straw piece that was performed here, please let me know. We are very interested in playing it as the song is important to us students in the ensemble. Thanks.
