On Sunday 8 December, I will be talking at Conway Hall about the development of the saxophone, from its invention by Adolphe Sax, the importance of the work of Theobald Boehm and Hyacinthe Klosé, and its move from classical to jazz via ragtime, in my pre-concert talk at for Conway Hall Sunday Concerts. 

This is in advance of the concert by the Arcis Saxophon Quartett with music by Steve Reich, Dvorak, Bernstein, Barber and Gershwin.

Full details from the Conway Hall website.
