Program Notes

Written only 20 years after the saxophone's invention, this 1860 masterpiece captured, for the first time, the enormous potential of the saxophone.

- Program note by publisher


Fantaisie sur un Thème Original, written by Jules Demersseman in 1860, was composed in the early days of the saxophone's history, when the instrument was relatively unknown. The high technical facility called for in this work is thus all the more surprising. Demersseman had an outstanding reputation as a flute virtuoso; as a composer, he was known for his flute and saxophone fantasies.
