The saxophone is much less used in classical music in Hungary than it is in Western Europe, even though it is a versatile instrument that can be played in a wide variety of settings and in almost every musical style. In this two-part concert, students of classical saxophone from the Liszt Academy, who have achieved great success in competitions, will demonstrate the instrument’s potential, from 19th-century romantic works to pieces by contemporary Japanese composers. Schubert’s sonata was originally written for piano and a new invention, the bowed guitar, introduced in 1823. The instrument, which was particularly suited to playing progressions of thirds, double stops and arpeggios, only began to be called an arpeggione in the 1870s, just after Schubert’s work. Jean-Baptiste Singelée belonged to the generation of composers who followed Schubert. He was among the first to find the saxophone a serious instrument suitable for classical music. He encouraged his close friend Adolphe Sax to develop the four main members of the saxophone family. He then composed what is supposedly the world’s first-ever work for saxophone quartet.
