List of Recommended Repertoire for Eb Sopranino, F Mezzo-soprano,
C Soprano, C Tenor saxophones

(with piano unless specified)


Eb Sopranino saxophone
It seems like transposing flute and piccolo trumpet music is the order of the day for sopranino players. There simply isn't much original music out there yet for this increasingly popular instrument. Some alto saxophone and Eb clarinet music works well, and baroque pieces for recorder, oboe, or trumpet often sound great!
Some suitable pieces can be also be found in the unaccompanied and sax/tape/electronics lists.

F Mezzo-soprano saxophone
English horn music usually works beautifully on the mezzo, as does some French horn repertoire. Here are a few original works for the sadly and unjustly neglected mezzo.

C Soprano, C Tenor
Nothing much in the way of original music exists for these undeservedly obsolete instruments. Oboe, flute, violin, and vocal music are all sources for pieces to play, however. Be creative!
