I love this instrument, and have played it in different combinations throughout the year.
I flew to Liverpool (on Friday the 13th!) to pick up this instrument, that used to belong to a danceband player from Carlisle. I tested the instrument at the airport (nowadays I would advise against doing something like that), and took it back to the Netherlands.
On the way back, an announcement was made that all passengers on the flight were to hand their hot drinks back to the cabin personel, because of the heavy turbulence that was expected. I woke up on the runway in Amsterdam, and slept through all of the mayhem.
I played baritone in the Dutch Saxophone Quartet (founded in 1969, like the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet) from 2009-2014. Here is a picture of the quartet recording Tristan Keuris’ “Music for Saxophones” in Amsterdam, in 2009.
