    No offense, but just search for it on YouTube yourself. I have searched it plenty of times and there are plenty of reordings on there.

    As to why it costs so much, it is 6 mvts of music so I actually think $50 is a good price. If you need to get it since it sounds you are playing it in the near future, just get it.

    I recently just looked at a version my local music store has and if I remember correctly, it was like 2-3 pages per mvt. Maybe more on a mvt or 2.

    As for recordings, I just looked again and it appears they took a few off unfortunately. Well here is one:

    And here is a master class by Jean Marie Londeix on it. Yeah, it's in french but a guy is faintly translating it.

    I think my favorite version is Claude Delangle, look for his album on iTunes, amazon, or whatever.

    I'm assuming this is for CBDA.
    I'd recommend that you order it from eble or somewhere similar, as it's great to have music in your rep.
    I bought it about 6 weeks ago, and with all 5 movements the saxophone part is 12 pages long.

    Actually no. I'm a bit over auditions. I made a state group once and didn't make Southern California which makes no sense so I figured I'd screw auditions for now. I'm a very nervous player. I couldn't play an F# major scale because I was so nervous but I felt more comfortable on the piece given and did surprisingly well above my expectations so they cut me slack in state. I felt I did great in SC too but with 80-300 saxophonists auditioning and 2 1st alto spots you can't expect them to make the perfect choice every time.

    I actually just picked it up today (yesterday) at T.I.S. Music here in Bloomington, IN. It was in their discount section for $25, and in perfect condition; I couldn't pass it up!

    Sorry for bragging, I couldn't resist.

    I find that pretty arrogant. I was taught to treat every audition the same. From State to small local honor bands, you treat with the same dignity, respect, and never say "I made a state group so I don't know why they didn't pick me for this." I can understand you get nervous, but saying that? Just my 2 cents

    Leduc folios are usually a bit larger paper than normal, and so are tough to scan.

    Why do you think everything should be cheap/free?

    It's against the law to do this. French music has always been a little more expensive than non-imports. Of course, wholesale copying just exacerbates the problem.

    Yeah I know I was joking on that part (hence the LD face XD). My parents are usually somewhat willing to get me books on music as long as it isn't that $300 song I can't remember >.>

    Oh and Lovano, yeah I get what you mean but what I meant was my nervousness is what makes me not do them. I just feel that unless the judge or recorder knows your progress in music, he can't determine if you deserve it. IMHO I don't think I deserved the state group, but I think the SC one might have been possible. In fact I definately don't think I deserve the state group, personally I'm not even that into classical work 0-0 (well at least less than jazz). I just find it annoying how nervousness gets the best of people who deserve certain spots over people who lucked out like I did in State and felt good for once. There are 2 students who ring a bell in my school that match this comparison perfectly. One is a kid who practices the piece 8 hours a day, 6 months before the audition, and usually makes a spot. The other has a gift as a classical player, loves music, does his general practice and play, and is a fine musician but doesn't always get in when he has what groups are looking for.

    It costs that much because both the composer and the publisher who makes this wonderful music available to us need to be paid for their talent and their service.

    Tableaux is one of the staples of the saxophone canon. Fifty dollars is not much money to ask for a piece of music that will enrich your life forever.

    dude, you don't deserve anything. You earn a spot or you don't.
    My junior year in high school, i wwas beat by a soph. tenor player who flat out sucked, but he got the spot. 2 weeks later I nailed the audition for area, and almost made it to state. I would of made it but I got messes over in the pre state audition by the room person. A few months earlier I made 2nd Tenor in Jazz at the area. There are no gurantees that I would of made it my senior year. You have a good preformance or you don't, you work you butt off or you don't. period.

    Exactly. You may believe you deserve a spot over someone and that judges are wrong when they do not select you sometimes, but it comes down to how prepared you are. Nervousness or not. And most auditons are done so the judges are non-biased (blind). They are fair and if you are too arrogant to think otherwise, then you don't deserve to get it. Simple as that

    Oh no, I thought I DIDN'T deserve the state spot. The judges are VERY fair knowledgeable people, I was just saying, nervousness can kill it from being the best player in the state to not even getting considered

    The ability to perform well under pressure and in public is far more important than the ability to do great things in a practice room but nowhere else. What counts is being able to perform well...WHEN IT COUNTS. The best players are the ones who can do that...not the ones who can only play well behind closed doors where it doesn't count for anything. The inability to conquer one's own nervousness and play well on an audition...(or any other public performance situation)...automatically disqualifies them from being considered "the best player in the state". You have to be able to perform when it counts...period.

    Wow that was quite wise. I'd be smart to get off my *** and write that down.

    Does anyone have suggestions on overcoming nervousness?
