American Dreams

Endless fascinating prairie landscapes; the exciting pulse of the city that never sleeps; the swinging life of the Southern states; stories full of dreams, hopes and love. In 'American Dreams', the Arcis Saxophone Quartet presents a broad musical range of the American way of life.

Pre-concert talk, 5:30pm | Robert Hugill: The Fascinating History of the Saxophone

When it was invented by Adolphe Saxe, the saxophone was only one of a number of instruments created to correct the problems inherent in the instrumentation of the orchestra. Perceived as classical in the 19th century, the instrument’s 20th century history has enabled players to cross boundaries and genres.
