The final ‘Postcard from France’ symbolises the growth and new life of ‘Springtime’.
The easy going opening, depicting the emergence of warmth and breaking out of winter, grows out of the theme from Rendez-Vous in Picardie and sees the soprano sax accompanying the piano before introducing a new theme which is full of life.
This begins a conversation between the two instruments which is contrapuntal in style; melodies and themes weaving in and out of each other before fading out.
Zoe Felton is a saxophonist, instrumental teacher and composer living in central England. Initially studying Music and Psychology at Keele, she majored in composition.
Although she enjoys playing music, whether that be having a blast on the sax at home or performing with Loughborough Concert Band, and sharing that passion through teaching, Zoe’s love of music comes out most in composing.
Zoe has written music for a range of instrumentation from small ensemble through to windbands and orchestras.
