Divertissement sur Une Ballade Irlandaise: for soprano saxophone and piano

Alexandra: royale-polka

"Divertissement sur Une Ballade Irlandaise" begins with a lyric introduction in bel canto style. The Irish Ballade is named in the score as "My Lodging is on the Cold Ground", but is sometimes known as "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms" and is followed by a brilliant variation. After an ornamented modal passage in 6/8, the allemande theme is presented first in a moderate tempo, and then in a more rapid variant which uses "cross string" figerations similar to those used by fiddlers.
