Blurb/Shorttext:
This book investigates the development of the classical saxophone from 1850-1950. The development of woodwind technology and repertory are traced contemporaneously in order to formulate new approaches to historical performance practice of major saxophone works. The book focuses on the innovations of instrument manufacturers alongside the ground-breaking compositions of Demersseman, Debussy and Ibert. This work aims to aid saxophone players to not only understand the development of their instrument and repertory, but also the evolution and utilisation of vintage saxophones of previous eras. Important historical events are also studied alongside the development of saxophone technology and repertory. The book would appeal to saxophone performers, woodwind students, music historians and academics.
