Although the saxophone was invented in the 1840s, well before the origin of jazz music, it is predominantly associated with jazz, either as a solo instrument or in big bands. On the other hand, it has been quite popular with classical composers since the start of the 20th century and is featured in numerous works for orchestra, chamber ensemble or solo saxophone. Both classical and jazz styles will be featured.
