For alto saxophone and piano Adolphe Sax, the brillant inventor of the saxophone (patented in 1846), held the position of Director of Stage Music at the Paris Opera from 1847 to 1894. It was the ideal situation for promoting and testing his instruments in an orchestra - the inventor managed to impose the saxophone in certain operatic works, symphonies, ballet music and of course military music. Numerous appearances of the instrument have been catalogued, first timidly blended into the orchestra, then in actual colourful solos. If the presence of saxophones in the Corona d'Italia by G. Rossini, Tannhaüser by R. Wagner, la Damnation de Faust by H. Berlioz, Ondine et le pêcheur by P. Dukas, Hulda by C. Franck ou 1st symphonie by A. Magnard seems a half hearted attempt, other composers like G. Bizet, C. Saint-Saëns, A. Thomas, V. d'Indy, L. Delibes, G. Charpentier or J. Massenet gave the instrument beautiful singing phrases from the heart of the orchestra. Only a handful of mixed chamber music works were written before 1900. However the combination of saxophone accompanied by piano (or brass band) was commonly used. The music was generally written by the inventor's friends, often conductors of military bands, using a simple and classical style to meet the needs of open-air entertainment (themes and variations far removed from the great romantic masterpieces of the period). This little musical suite outlines the chronology of saxophone solos before 1900, to be played with a piano reduction for harmonic support.
