Hi, I'm more than positive that this has probably been covered but, who are some world renowned classical saxophonists?
Aside from all the common ones we know:
I was very lucky to see Timothy McAllister perform at the Saxophone Symposium in Virginia. Please check out the flash audio samples of the group he is in called "PRISM Quartet". You have never heard saxophone like this!
