Quartet for Saxophones (1990), Tayloe Harding

Quartet for Saxophones (1990) is a work in three movements for the standard saxophone quartet. The work is traditional in its structure: the outer "fast" movements make use of angular melodies and repeating motivic fragments developed from the melodies, while the inner "slow" movement features a lyrical melody exchanged through the instruments in an evolving, but recurring homophonic texture. Each movement is also of a different form: simple arch, ABA; through composed, song-like; developmental, monothematic.
