In 2014, Adolphe Sax was remembered and celebrated all over the world: indeed the Belgian geniusinventor was born in Dinant in 1814 and he died 80 years later in Paris after a rather turbulent life with several amazing achievements as well as failures and fiascos! In the aftermath of the “International Adolphe Sax Competition”, which was held in November ’14 in his native city, the idea was born to pay hommage to this important figure by recording a Cd featuring his most famous invention: the saxophone. By presenting the saxophone in various combinations (some of which are less common), it becomes clear how versatile and how well integrated this instrument has become in the international music business. It wasn’t easy to make a representative selection as there really is a lot to choose from! We specifically have focused on the soprano and the alto saxophone as the main solo instruments of the entire family, though also the tenor gets some exposure.

Niels Bijl

Niels’ love for the tenor saxophone began as a 12-year-old under the inspiring tutorship of Willy van Diepen in Haaksbergen. During the early years Niels was mostly active in Big Bands and Blues and Jazz bands (including founder of the blues band Cuban Heels), but later at the Conservatorium in Enschede his knowledge of classical and contemporary music was perfected under the supervision of Arno Bornkamp and Johan van der Linden. Currently Niels works as saxophonist on regular productions with symphony orchestras (including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Anima Eterna, World Orchestra for Peace) but his passion lies in Chamber Music, collaborating with among others: the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet, pianists Hans-Erik Dijkstra, Rob Horsting, harpist Maaike Bosscher and recorder player Ronald Moelker. His most important motivations are a quest for innovation, quality and passion in music. He shares this passion with young saxophonists through giving master classes around the world and, closer to home, his activities at the music school in Hengelo.

Ronald Moelker

Flute Player Ronald Moelker has done numerous concert tours and recordings as a recorder soloist and with ensembles like the Lacrimae Ensemble and the Bassano Quartet. 

He moves easily and seamlessly between different musical genres. He unites a large number of styles and timbres and proves that the boundaries of what is possible with a recorder have not yet been reached. 

In addition to his work in the area of early music, he performs modern compositions and improvisations, including his own work, utilizing Tibetan Bowls and Percussion. 

He has performed at major European Music Festivals such as the ECM Festival in Heraklion and the Festivals for Early Music in Utrecht, Brugge, Skara, Basel and St. Petersburg. He won several prizes and received awards at The Early Music Festival in Brugge and The Van Wassenaer Competition NL (First Prize). 

Ronald Moelker studied recorder at the Conservatory in Rotterdam and at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
