Score available on this site € 10,-Order music
Half a year after the birth of Lago’s oldest son Joep another kid named Esli was born just a block away from Lago’s house in Utrecht, Joep in 1999 and Esli in 2000. Esli Steenbeek and Joep van Merwijk became close friends in Kindergarten and Esli also became a close friend of the family.
Therefore Lago decided to write him a special gift for his 18th birthday and his graduation from Gymnasium, before Esli would leave for Leiden to study medicine and become a surgeon. Finished and delivered with a few months delay….
For Esli is based on a theme from Lago’s Concerto for baritone saxophone ‘El Vagabundo’ and on the first movement of ‘Dos Caras’ for soprano saxophone and piano.
For a wonderful person and a great friend.
