    Default Manfred Sax Bassoon

    A few years ago I purchased a CD of Manfred Sax (What a name for a bassooninst) performing the Danzi Bassoon Concert in F Major and the Devienne Bassoon Concerto in B Flat Major. He is a fantastic bassooninst but I can not find anything about him. Does anybody know anything about Mr. Sax

    Manfred Sax was principal bassoon of the Tonhalle Orchestra of Zurich (c. 1992) Source: IDRS
    Born in in München, Bayern, Germany Source: random liner note (no dates)

    He is credited with being the teacher at the Zurich Conservatory of a lot of current bassoonists.

    Amazing lack of information, except for his discography.
