Description
Jules Demersseman was born on January 9, 1833 in Hondschoote, a small town in the north of France
now near the border of Belgium. He entered the Paris Conservatory in 1844 in the class of Jean-Louis
Tulou and won a first prize in flute in 1845. Demersseman had a career as a pedogogue and soloist, often
performing his own compositions. A close friend of Adolphe Sax, he wrote some of the first works ever
written for the saxophone, as well as for the saxhorn and for Sax‘s valved trombone, most of which were
published by Sax himself.. Demersseman died in Paris on December 1, 1866 at the age of 33.
