Jean-Baptiste Singelée (born September 25, 1812 in Bruxelles- died September29, 1875 in Paris) was a violinist, conductor and Composer. He performed as aviolinist in the Orchestra of the Opéra-comique in Paris and then as first violinof the Orchestra of the Royal theatre de la Monnaie in Bruxelles. He wasconductor of the theatre of Gant, and then at the Theatre de La Monnaie deBruxelles. He wrote ballets, two violin concertos and many instrumental pieces,including the first Saxophone Quartet and many of the first examination piecesfor Sax (who probably studied at the Royal Conservatory in Bruxelles at the sametime 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 beperformed by a saxophone ensemble (Sax's saxophone class, perhaps?) rather than single players. These divisipassages have been left intact in order to allow performances by ensembles. The smaller notes (in brackets) shouldbe left out when performed by a quartet.

  • April 16, 2018 This piece deserves to be heard

    An excellent piece for any intermediate to an advanced level quartet. Each part is sufficiently challenging while at the same time accessible to the audience and players. I can highly recommend adding this to your repertoire. Very enjoyable to play and listen to.
