The Devil’s Horn

Banned by the church, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and even the soundtracks of 50’s Hollywood, the saxophone has been called “the most cursed of instruments”.  It was invented by the Belgian, Adolphe Sax, a genius whose very life was threatened because of the wild success of his instrument.  “The Devil’s Horn” traces the 175 year dark history of the instrument while featuring a number of present day players of different musical genres who have been touched by its curse.  This film makes you see the saxophone in a whole new light.
