The saxophone has a rich tradition of performing transcriptions. In recent years, saxophonists have begun exploring the performance of transcriptions that would have previously been believed to be outside of the capabilities of the saxophone. In general, this new wave of transcriptions has been drawn from the repertoire of string instruments. Through the arrangement of Claude Debussy's Cello Sonata of 1915, this document provides a step-by-step explanation of how saxophonists can effectively transcribe string music for the saxophone.
