Episode 307: Adolphe Sax
The inventor of the saxophone was Adolphe Sax and he was born in Belgium. This month is international sax month because his birthday is in November... on the 6th actually. He was born in 1814 and that would make this the second centennial of his birth. Most of the instruments he invented were actually done from his workshop in Paris, and there is a complete family of instruments known as saxhorns. And, they weren’t all reed instruments, either. It gets a little complicated because several inventors worked on these horns, but he either invented the flugelhorn and the euphonium or made major contributions to their development.
