‘The Devil’s Horn’
Presented by Larry Weinstein & ARTE Deutschland
From Adolphe Sax’s workshop to the legendary times of jazz and bebop,conquering the classical music stages, forbidden by Nazis and Communists and banned by the Pope: in its 170-year history the saxophone has always been the most seductive as well as the most feared musical instrument. Award-winningCanadian filmmaker Larry Weinstein illuminates and mythologizes the story of the saxophone, its most legendary players and its allegedly longstanding curse about saxophonists falling prey to the instrument’s dark powers.
