Deeply interested in violin repertoire he also dedicates himself to transcribe and play with the saxophone important compositions for this instrument. His transcriptions are always caracterized by a high fidelity to the original, even when the performance requires some confidence with the altissimo register.
He is member and musical director of Sax Antiqua, a saxophone group specialized in Ancient Music repertoire.

The Series III Soprano ensures greater playability, particularly as regards pitch and blowing.
The blowing emission of its high register extended to high G has been largely facilitated. Selecting a straight or curved neck allows to get well acquainted with it.
The 'Series III' Alto is no doubt the most performing of our catalogue. It is a very accurate model in terms of tuning and emission. It offers a great richness of tone.
The Axos saxophone is our professional range entry level. It bears the acoustic qualities common to all our models. Like its predecessors, it is manufactured in our Mantes-la-Ville factory. It is characterized by a rich tone and easy blowing making it accessible to a larger public.
The 'Series III' Tenor has marked, when released in 1997, an actual revival of the great playing flexibility of the old models. This gives it an ease of playing very much appreciated by saxophonists of all levels.
The 'Super Action 80 Series II' baritone offers excellent consistency of sound over the whole register, without break-up between low and high notes.
It develops a particularly warm and mellow tone, thus sublimating the features characteristic to this instrument.
After 100 years of innovation, design, and manufacturing of the saxophone, Henri SELMER Paris redefines the modern identity of the alto saxophone with the Supreme.
