Aurelius

“Aurelius”, composed for the Aurelius Saxophone Quartet, is a beautiful tone poem with flowing melodies, lush harmonies, mood changes and a heroic climax. More musically challenging than technically demanding, it is playable and a welcome addition to the repertoire.”

Blues

This is the statement for the Blues: Slow, laid back and soulful, with all the rich textural colors and interplay found in the writing of Clare Fischer, this little blues is easy to play and a treat to hear. It would be a good stylistic challenge for younger groups, and a perfect change of pace or encore for any program.”

Morning

One of Clare Fischer’s most widely known and performed compositions, now a jazz standard, is available here.

Advance Music, Clare’s publishing company, has released the score and parts to the big band arrangement that was recorded with strings on Clare’s “Latin Side” recording. Clare wrote this arrangement for the Metropole Orchestra in Holland, and they did a marvelous job of performing it on that recording. Now it is available for any organization to perform that has access to both a big band and a string section.

If you obtain both the score and the recording, you have the makings of a great study resource.

Harmonic Excercises

When Clare tired of playing exercises to improve his skills at the piano, he wrote this book.

Strayhorn for Big Band – Arranged by Dr. Bill Dobbins

From the publisher: “Clare Fischer originally recorded Strayhorn in 1962 with his trio on “Surging Ahead”. Dr. Bill Dobbins has arranged it as a piano feature. He completely wrote out the solo piano part so that it can also be played by good classically-trained musicians with little jazz experience. Jazz pianists are, of course, invited to improvise the solo.”

Grade 3-4, Score and Parts – also a includes a full recording CD

Gaviota for Saxophone Quartet – Arranged by Dirk Fischer and Orchestrated by Ramon Ricker

From the back cover: “In Spanish Gaviota means sea gull. The title is descriptive of this Bolero (similar to an American ballad with a Latin beat with its beautifully flowing melody) … Clare Fischer is a master composer – a musician’s musician. Have a good time getting into the melody and harmony of this piece. There is much to learn here.”

From Clare Fischer: “Gaviota is my imagery of a gull with wings stretched, gliding on the ocean currents of air. It is a mixture of quasi bolero romanticism with Guajira like rhythm.”
