Since 1953, the number of compositions for saxophone-cello duo has increased from one to nearly forty. Due to the short history of this genre, there is little research done specifically regarding this ensemble. This document provides musicians with a single source containing a list of select compositions, stylistic traits, and performance information on saxophone-cello duos. Chapter One gives information on sources used to locate works, defines terms used to describe works, and explains the purpose for updating current sources. Purpose, need for study, and the author’s methodology is also outlined in this section. Chapter Two is an annotated bibliography of seventeen saxophone-cello duos. The entries are categorized into three twentieth-century compositional styles: post-tonal, neoclassical, and polystylistic, listed alphabetically by composer. Each entry will include the following information: the composer’s birth and death years; title; movements; date of composition; approximate duration; name of publisher; date of publication; commissioning body (if applicable); and dedication (if applicable). Each annotation will briefly describe the work’s form, style characteristic, and performance considerations for saxophone and cello. Chapter Three includes information on selected works from professional members of saxophone-cello duos. Interviews with Paul Bro and Kurt Fowler from the Bro-Fowler Duo and Jonathan Helton and Steven Thomas from the Helton-Thomas Duo provide primary source material. Their experiences performing, researching, and commissioning works for saxophone-cello duo are presented in relation to selected works from the annotated bibliography.
