Birthday Greetings to Adolphe Sax - 201 Today

Last year was the Big Birthday, of course.  The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland lent a horn made by Sax, to the Musical Instrument Museum in Brussels to celebrate Sax200.  But today Adolphe Sax would have been 201!

Here's our Sax Horn (as opposed to his saxhorn, which is a different beast entirely!).  Find out more about our musical instrument collection by contacting our Archives Officer.
