Paul Creston ‘s Sonata for saxophone and piano, Op.

An analysis of Paul Creston’s Sonata for E-flat alto saxophone and piano.

Credton came speedily to Creston: The work is written for E flat saxophone and has three movements, the headings of which are in common-sense English, as espoused by a handful of American composers in the s and ’40s, rather than the traditional Italian.
