June Emerson: Bonk! for Eb or Bb Saxophones
A few words from Chris Jolly:
BONK! is a duet that features an ever developing groove built up between the 2 performers. It’s staggered opening evolves into a driving and pulsating mix of rich bass and floating lyrical sounds that highlight the range of the instrument.
The piece can be performed as a duet of equal instruments or mix and match the Bb and Eb versions. Please note this version will not work with the bass clarinet or baritone sax versions.
A complete performance of BONK! is available online for reference and recordings of each part are also available allowing the opportunity of playing this as a soloist with backing track. This is a great opportunity to experiment with different ways of presenting this piece within a recital. C. Jolly, June 2020.
