Information about Eales G : Farewell Patagonia for Tenor Saxophone
Farewell Patagonia for Tenor Saxophone and Piano by Geoff Eales
This work pays homage to the indomitable spirit of those pioneering Welsh men and women who, beginning a century and half ago, forged a new life for themselves in Chubut Province on the southern-most tip of Argentina.
Celebratory in tone, the piano sets the mood from the word go. The driving tango rhythm must be relentless throughout, apart from the brief middle section ( bars 40 - 56 ) where a more lyrical approach is required. Even here, the strict Latin tempo should never waver.
Currently, there are three versions of this piece : a tenor saxophone/piano arrangement performed by Matt London and Geoff Eales on Matt's CD "Speak Now", the flute & piano version recorded by Andy Findon and Geoff Eales on the CD "The Dancing Flute" (Nimbus Alliance NI 6216), and a flute, horn and piano setting by the ELF Trio featuring Geoff, Dave Lee and Andy Findon
