The first great classical composer to appreciate the potential of the saxophone was Alexander Glazunov, in Russia in the late nineteenth century. Today, there are plenty of composers propelling the sax ensemble format into the future. Like young Maarten De Splenter of Belgium. He had the spunk to send us one of his pieces for the world to hear for the very first time.
