Sonatina for Alto Saxophone and Piano was published in 1968 and remains prominent as a more unusual addition to the ensemble repertoire. Dubois' music is characteristically light-hearted with unusual harmonic and melodic textures. Sonatina reflects Dubois' compositional characteristics with a typical performance lasting about eight minutes. Dubois' work is suitable for advanced performers, addressing virtuosic features, such as complex rhythms, particularly flourishing semiquaver passages, variations in articulation, chromaticism, and exploitation of the ensemble, among other aspects. Sonatina is essential to the advanced Alto Saxophone repertoire as Dubois' work makes for an exciting, varied and enjoyable performance for players and audiences alike.
