Eugene Rousseau in Europe

Eugene Rousseau Rousseau's artistry has inspired many "firsts." He gave the first solo saxophone recitals in Paris, Berlin, Vienna, London and Amsterdam. He has taught a yearly master course at the prestigious Mozarteum in Salzburg during 1991-2001, marking the first time that the saxophone was included at that institution. He has premiered numerous works written for him, including the Partita by Juan Orrego-Salas (with the Haydn Trio of Vienna), Jindřich Feld's Sonata for alto saxophone and piano, and Concerto for saxophones and orchestra, Bernhard Heiden's Fantasia Concertante for alto saxophone and winds, Hear Again in Memory, by Frederick Fox, Don Freund's Skyscrapings for alto saxophone and piano, and Concertos by Libby Larsen, Claude Baker, and David DeBoor Canfield. Dr. Rousseau has made frequent trips to Europe from the U.S., most recently in 2015 to the Italian peninsula.

“I like the purity and the centering of the sound in all registers, as well as the overall tone and the ease of articulation.”

Andrea Mocci, Conservatory of Cagliari, Italy

"I play the E. Rousseau mouthpieces because it feels and performs as a natural extension of my concept of sound. Tone is well-centered in all registers and response is exactly what I need for my best performances. I also love this mouthpiece for the sound clarity. From attack to release, it is very clear. "

Roberto Todini is Professor of Saxophone at the Conservatory "F. Morlacchi "of Perugia, Italy.

“I've tested with other famous mouthpieces, and I must tell you that I really like the E. Rousseau Studio Jazz mouthpiece. Uniformity of sound, dark color, easy to play, easy on the staccato, even in all registers, and it holds together at all volumes.”

Nuno Miguel Silva, Music Conservatory Choral Phydellius, at the Conservatory Jaime Chavinha (CAORG), at Vitorino Matono’s Music Institute and at the Conservatory Sons e Compassos (Sintra). Portugal

“The sound of the Rousseau NC mouthpiece is well-centered, with good harmonics and projection, and the tone is darker and full. As for the Studio Jazz mouthpiece, the sound is bright but without exaggeration, powerful and moldable, exactly what I was looking for from a mouthpiece with a medium opening”.

Johan van der Linden, professor of saxophone at the Artez Conservatory in Zwolle and the Hku in Utrecht and was an original member of the world famous Aurelia Saxophone Quartet The Netherlands

Saša Nestorović, Zagreb Music School, Zagreb Saxophone Quartet, professional player, composer, arrange, Slovenia

“E. Rousseau New Classic (NC4) are best multi-use mouthpieces, from chamber music to orchestral level dynamics. They provide the widest dynamic range of all classical saxophone mouthpieces. E.Rousseau Studio Jazz mouthpieces provide a grace and freedom that is just perfect. The pitch is superb on all saxophones and it does NOT exasperate your chops at all like other jazz mouthpieces do. In combination with New Classic, you can have it both ways –a professional classical saxophone mouthpiece and professional jazz performance mouthpiece – with E. Rousseau.”

Ricardo Figueria, the University School of Music of Montevideo (EUM), Uruguay

“With my E. Rousseau RC4 mouthpiece I achieve a very warm sound. It is a very easy and comfortable mouthpiece to play. It is also highly responsive and consistent through all registers.

I sincerely believe my Rousseau RC4 Mouthpiece provides me the quality of sound I have been looking for”.
