Paul Gilson's Premier Concerto from 1902 is one of the first compositions for saxophone. The Belgian composer used all the typical characteristics of the instrument, such as its powerful tone, suppleness, virtuosity and warm sound. Tom de Haes has created a reconstruction based on the partly missing original version for concert band, the piano score and the version for symphony orchestra.
