Jules (Auguste Edouard) Demersseman (1833-1866) was in his time a remarkable flautist and meritorious composer. Historically the most important works he composed were those for the new trombone with six independent valves developed by Adolphe Sax. The music of Jules Demersseman is certainly unknown to brass players at present, but this recording of his 'lost' works for the now extinct six valve trombone is sure to put his music into the minds of brass players now. It is wonderfully inventive and spontaneous music which tests the ability of even today's players. How these virtuoso pieces were played on the trombone with six independent valves we just don't know, it seems too remarkable for words!
