In 2014, Adolphe Sax was remembered and celebrated all over the world. Indeed, the Belgian genius and inventor was born in Dinant in 1814 and he died 80 years later in Paris after a turbulent life with several amazing achievements as well as failures and fiascos!
In the aftermath of the “International Adolphe Sax Competition”, which was held in November 2014 in his native city, the idea was born to pay homage to this important figure by recording an album featuring his most famous invention – the saxophone.
By presenting the saxophone in various combinations (some of which are less common), it becomes clear how versatile and how well integrated this instrument has become in the international music business. It wasn’t easy to make a representative selection as there really is a lot to choose from!
We specifically have focused on the soprano and the alto saxophone as the main solo instruments of the entire family, though also the tenor gets some exposure.
