Xavier Rosselle

Saxophonist and composer Xavier Rosselle participates in numerous creations and concerts as a performer, improviser or composer in France and abroad.

After three years with the Saxophone Quartet of Versailles and the DéSaxés, he devotes himself to contemporary creation and at the same time, in 1993, he founds his company Musique Création Diffusion and creates musical shows.

His interest in all forms of artistic expression leads him to play with musicians from different horizons (Louis Sclavis, Antoine Hervé...) and to write stage music for theatre, puppets and dance.

Among his creations, let's quote among others:
- La marche dans le tunnel created at CNAT, scène Nationale de Reims (texts by Henry Michaux) ;
- Petites scènes, musical theatre (Avignon in 1997) ;
- Déo Juvante created in Monaco for the 700th anniversary of the Grimaldi family;
- Gernika with Anna Prucnal et Michel Hermon ;
- La confidence des oiseaux : spectacle chorégraphique by Luc Petton, created in 2006 and on tour until 2012.     

In 2009, he composed Radeaux, his first opera based on a libretto by Christian Siméon, directed by Jean-Marie Lejude and premiered at the Reims Opera

For the composition of Swan's soundtrack, Xavier Rosselle received a commission from the French government.

In parallel to his eclectic career as a musician and composer, he is active as a pedagogue; he holds a C.A. and teaches saxophone at the REIMS C.R.R.

Instruments
played
Soprano Saxophone
Series III soprano

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.

Alto Saxophone
Series III alto

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.
