I apologize not to feature, an english translation. Maybe later, if everybody is wise... I'm waiting, right now, to check ...

Don't look for a button . I have chosen to simply put 2 translations online, in English and German. Each paragraph in French is followed by 2 translations.
All you have to do is come down to find them.

quote:

"The most remarkable thing revealed by this catalogue is that René Guénot produced altos in F (also known as mezzo soprano). Rare instruments, intermediaries in size between the curved soprano and the alto, intended more particularly for the symphony orchestra. Here, they are sold at the same price as the altos in Eb. Very few factories built them. There is Adolphe Sax, who invented it and Conn who made it around 1928-29. To my knowledge, no other factory, at least French, including Selmer, made it."

That is fascinating information. It seems as if Guénot was trying to innovate and compete at the highest level. Mezzo sopranos (alto sax in ‘F’) were only known to be made by Conn and Adolph Sax.

I succeeded to get some pics of a mezzo soprano Guénot. I put them on my website, in the part dedicated to it.
