The instrumental chamber music ensemble consisting of saxophone, violin, and piano has intrigued composers due to the variety of timbral differences available and a majority of the works for this ensemble have been written in the past twenty-five years, creating an established chamber music genre. The compositions discussed in this document illustrate various styles and levels of difficulty for the performer. Many of the works may be considered to be simpler works based upon the rhythms and time signatures employed by the composer. However, several pieces require extended or advanced techniques such as multiphonics, altissimo, and quarter-tones for the saxophone and pitch bends and harmonics for the violin. This document may provide teachers, students, and performers a concise and single source for published compositions of the genre describing the works and the possible extended techniques employed.
