Marcel Mule is recognized as a master of classical saxophone and spiritual heir to Adolphe Sax (the inventor of the saxophone). As founder of the French classical saxophone school, he hugely contributed to the instrument’s repertoire, having many works written for him, such as those by Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, and Florent Schmitt.

He became the first saxophone professor at the Paris Conservatoire since Adolphe Sax left in 1870.

Notable recordings include, ‘Marcel Mule – Le Patron of the Saxophone’ on Clarinet Classics, CC0013.
