Invented by Adolphe Sax and patented in 1846, the alto sax is commonly used in jazz compositions as well as military and marching bands. In the classical music realm, it’s a standard instrument within concert bands, and has featured in such compositions as Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris from George Gershwin as well as Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances in West Side Story. A member of the woodwind family, the alto is smaller than the tenor saxophone but larger than its soprano counterpart. GH Music offers a quality range to buy or hire from.
