I think it's a timbre thing - the sax's timbre is quite distinctive. But it is the timbre which makes each instrument distinct. I think part of it is that mainstream musicians don't hear saxes very often so they're not used to the sound.Hi all ,
It`s a little sad about the alto player the couple of high notes she glitched put paid to her.
I also find that if you have a whole host of instruments which really sound melodic and then an alto you are going to have an uphill struggle as, and I may be wrong, before you start to appreciate the beauty of the instrument when played well, the ear has to attune to it`s subtleties.
A lot of classicists have stated that it sounds a little discordant. Regds N.
