Sheet Music: Score
Alexander rag : for Sydney Soloists / Elena Kats-Chernin.
by Elena Kats-Chernin (2007)
This piece was written in dedication to my partner Alexander, it
was premiered in the recording by Lisa Moore for the CD "Purple
Black & Blues" (Tall Poppies), in 1998.
In 2007 I arranged it for an ensemble "Present Music"*) in Milwaukee in USA for their concert in which they premiered another piece of mine, "Village Idiot". They said it would be nice to have an extra piece in the programme, to give my music more exposure in that event. Later I arranged it again for wind quintet and string quintet plus a piano.
The piece is light and a little nostalgic.
*) the instrumentation
