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 ofGant, and then at the Theatre de La Monnaie deBruxelles. He wrote ballets, two violin concertos andmany instrumental pieces,including the first Saxophone Quartet andmany 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 in the form of a middle romantic period quartet: a sontata allegro with a slow introduction, anAndante,a scherzo with trio and a rondo-final).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.
