Remy Le Boeuf releases solo book, Vignettes II
Remy Le Boeuf, Chair of Jazz & Commercial Music, has published a new book of solo saxophone works entitled Vignettes II. The book is accompanied by a solo album and is a continuation of the first volume, Vignettes.
Like etudes, these twelve compositions focus on various challenges and skills, such as circular breathing, altissimo, double-tonguing, pitch bending, odd time signatures, overtones, speed, flexibility, syncopation, endurance, and dynamic contrast. They can be performed on all saxophones.
Le Boeuf worked with the University of Denver's Marketing & Communications department to make several videos which highlight the performance spaces and some special nooks within the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. Click these links to check them out:
