Born in Barcelona, where he obtained the title Superior of Saxophone, Efrem Roca went on to continue his studies at the C.N.R. de Musique et Danse de Montpellier, where he perfected the discipline in the hands of Philippe Braquart obtaining Mention Très Bien in the Cycle de Spécialisation in the disciplines of Saxophone and Chamber Music.
He has recorded and published a CD for the label “Ars Harmonica” Tribute to VENTAS (SAX 3+1), and has published the Concerto for Two Violins in D minor BWV 1043 by J. S. BACH for Saxophone Octet, by the French firm B. G. Editions.
Apart from concert life, he has had quite an intense dedication to teaching in Tarragona, Barcelona, France and currently in Andorra where he teaches at Conservatoire of Andorra.
He has been sponsored by the prestigious brand Henri SELMER Paris since 2007. In 2013, with the help of the SELMER company and the motivation from Efrem Roca, the ANDORRA SAX FEST project started.
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 '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.
This pioneering bi-material mouthpiece with its unique acoustic and sound properties testifies to Henri SELMER Paris’ evergrowing desire to improve its products. The golden metal ring lines the entire bore and allows for a denser, fuller sound with increased projection. The acoustic performance of this new alto saxophone mouthpiece signed “Claude Delangle” will charm saxophone players and audience members alike.
