Composer: Gabriel Faure
Arranger: Melanie Thorne
Format: Score and Parts
Instrumentation: Saxophone Quartet (Soprano Saxophone in Bb, Alto Saxophone in Eb, Tenor Saxophone in Bb, Baritone Saxophone in Eb)

Faure originally wrote his captivating Sicilienne for a production which unfortunately went bankrupt before ever the music was performed. Thankfully, he later arranged the orchestral setting as a solo for cello and piano and, concurrently, thought to include it in the incidental music for a play, Pelleas et Melisande. The Sicilienne has seen arrangements for everything from panpipes to tuba over the years, and Thorne here crafts an excellent arrangement for saxophone quartet, effectively translating the usual piano or harp accompaniment to the wind instruments.
