for Tenor Saxophone and Piano

Stacy Garrop (composer)


  • Tenor Saxophone in B
  • Piano


Garrop’s intense-yet-droll program note refers back to her earlier Tantrum for Alto Saxophone and Piano (2000), noting that WRATH is a new work revisiting Tantrum’s voice while “re-imagining it as a leaner, meaner, ferocious teenager who has moved on from an infant’s temper tantrum into an all-out vengeful fury.” Bearing the movement titles I. Menace, II. Shock, and III. Amok, WRATH is a rare major work in the tenor sax repertoire, with occasional explosions of wailing freedom, generous amounts of altissimo, and long patches of dark, traditional beauty. For advanced players. A knockout performance by saxophonist Joseph Lulloff is available at https://youtu.be/8mr0BUarVr0
