Saxiana Historic Collection

Since 1990, Saxiana and the saxophonist Nicolas Prost is always looking for works for the classical saxophone forgotten, rare, unpublished. Nicolas Prost collects a great deal of information from families, heirs to manuscripts, from private collections as well as from National Libraries, Universities or special Foundations. These works are kept in memory in the funds of the Saxiana collection and are currently and punctually represented to the public in discographic, editorial or concert form. This list is a selection (many other complete works have been observed and discovered (for example orchestral works included saxophone solo or saxophone section)
