During my undergrad studies, one of my main areas of interest was the sarrusophone. My university had one, and I became its curator. Fast forward a few years to 2006 and my interest is still there. During my most prolific span, I wrote a short work for six sarrusophones (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass, and E-flat Contrabass). To my knowledge, it is the first work for such an ensemble since Gounod wrote his Chorale et Musette in 1856. My work is in the style of a quasi-Hindemith march.
In lieu of actually performing the work on sarrusophones as intended, the work can also be performed on like-sized saxophones or on a mixture of saxophones and sarrusophones.
