Abstract [sv]

Under mitt tredje år som musiklärarstudent på Musikhögskolan Ingesund är jag den enda som har klassisk saxofon som huvudinstrument. Mitt intresse för saxofonkvartettspel har alltid varit stort men när det nu inte finns någon möjlighet till kvartettspel har intresset och längtan efter att få spela kvartett vuxit ännu mer. Därför handlar detta arbete om saxofonkvartett. Syftet har varit att ta reda på de utmaningar jag upplever när jag spelar på de fyra olika saxofonerna i kvartetten och när jag studerar in respektive saxofons stämma i ett kvartettstycke. För att genomföra studien har jag främst använt loggbok där jag har skrivit om mina upplevelser och sedan delat upp dem i olika kategorier; fysiska utmaningar, stämmornas utmaningar och instrumentens utmaningar. Resultatet visar bland annat på skillnader vad gäller instudering av varje saxofons respektive stämma och saxofonens roll i kvartetten. Det visar också på skillnader i hur jag använder min kropp för att få fram den optimala klangen på varje saxofon. I arbetets diskussionskapitel jämförs mina upplevelser med forskning och information från litteratur till stor del skriven av andra saxofonister.

Abstract [en]

During my third year as a music teacher student on Musikhögskolan Ingesund I am the only one who studies classical saxophone as my major subject. My interest of playing saxophone quartet have always been great but when there is no opportunity for quartet playing, the interest and the desire to play quartet has grown even more. Therefore, this work is about saxophone quartet. The purpose has been to find out the challenges I experience when I play the four different saxophones in the quartet and when I study the respective saxophone's part in a quartet piece. In order to complete the study, I have mainly used a logbook where I have written about my experiences and then divided them into different categories; physical challenges, the challenges of the parts and the challenges of the instruments. The results show, among other things, differences in the studying of each saxophone´s part and the saxophones role in the quartet. It also shows differences in how I use my body to get an optimal sound on each saxophone. In the discussion of the work, my experiences are compared with research and information from literature mainly written by other saxophonists.
