Marcel Mule and co-horts. Did a lot to help preserve the Saxophone as an instrument of serious music.

Can't seem to get out from under the mountain of French Radio Transcriptions this week, so I'm just going with the flow on this.

Tonight it's a performance from circa 1958 featuring the Quatuor Marcel Mule playing the music of Jeanine Rueff in a recording made for French Radio and not issued commercially.

Jeanine Rueff had a remarkable career, not only as part of that increasing number of Women composers in France but also as Professor at the prestigious Paris Conservatory.

This particular recording is her Quartet for Saxophones.

Can you help us out?
