Jean-Baptiste Singelée (born September 25, 1812 in Bruxelles- died September 29, 1875 in Paris) was a violinist, conductor and Composer. He performed as a violinist in the Orchestra of the Opéra-comique in Paris and then as first violin of the Orchestra of the Royal theatre de la Monnaie in Bruxelles. He was conductor of the theatre of Gant, and then at the Theatre de La Monnaie de Bruxelles. He wrote ballets, two violin concertos and many instrumental pieces, including the first Saxophone Quartet and many of the first examination pieces for Sax (who probably studied at the Royal Conservatory in Bruxelles at the same time as Singelée) at the saxophone class of the Paris Conservatory. The present work is the first movement of a four-movent quartet (the other movements being an Andante, an unnamed movement which was probably a scherzo and a final). Sadly, the other movements appeart to be lost. Given several divisi passages in thesoprano and baritone parts, it would appear that this work was intended to be performed by a saxophone ensemble (Sax's saxophone class, perhaps?) rather than single players. These divisi passages have been left intact in order to allow performances by ensembles. The smaller notes (in brackets) should be left out when performed by a quartet.
