You learn something new everyday. I stumbled across an article about the saxophone family & it mentioned Ravel's writing for sopranino saxophone in Bolero. I thought it was mistaken until I did some fact checking - very interesting!
I realize it was written for sopranino in F (anyone know when production on these ended?) but was curious if there are any orchestral recordings featuring the original intended instrumentation. Either an Eb or F 'nino would work. It'd be really interesting to hear it performed on a "period instrument".
Of course it works very well for soprano but I was just curious to see what kind of effect the change in timbre may or may not have.
Thanks in advance!
