Yes, That’s The Way Things Are

1996 | soprano/alto saxophone; soprano/clarinet or soprano/bassoon

Poem by "Koleba" (Kosek, Löwy, and Bachner), children killed in the Holocaust.

Errata

Some newer editions may already have these corrections.

  • there should be an accent on the first note
  • in the sax part, I now prefer a rest on beat 4, letting the voice enter alone
  • there can be a bit of a slow down into m. 21 but take the tempo up again in m. 25
  • at the end of 31, the voice can take a little time setting up the downbeat in the next measure. * The tempo should resume in m. 32 and the ba-da-dums should be sung with a carefree attitude.
  • m. 43, the dynamic in the sax part should read mp not mf
  • m. 50, the sax can take some time and really sock the note in m. 51
  • from m. 58 to m. 59 there should be a cresc. into m. 59. The first note in m. 59 should have an accent.
  • ideally, the "k" of "park" should end with the sax staccato
