Broadcaster Press 09 May 27, 2014 www.broadcasteronline.com NMM ‘celebrates Can you learn a new thing? the Saxes’ with summer exhibition The Prairie Doc Perspective The National Music Museum (NMM) in Vermillion, South Dakota, is joining the worldwide celebration of the 200th birthday of the great Belgian musical-instrument inventor Adolphe Sax (1814-1894), with a limited-time exhibition of some of the finest Sax instruments (made by his hand or in his workshop). Sax, who invented far more than his famous namesake saxophone, made an indelible impact on almost all modern musical genres with his creations. “Celebrating the Saxes” opens at the National Music Museum on Friday, May 23, and closes after Labor Day, Sept. 2. This privileged look into the NMM’s Adolphe Sax collection would be a draw alone. But the Museum’s world-class instrument holdings extend also to the other brilliant craftsmen of the Sax family: Adolphe’s father, Charles-Joseph (1790-1865) and Adolphe’s son, Adolphe-Edouard (1859-1945). Says NMM curator Deborah Check Reeves: "The NMM’s exhibit is 'everything you wanted to know about Sax (but were afraid to ask). It’s got major 'sax appeal.’ It's a battle of the Saxes." The dynasty of Sax artisans reigned in Brussels and Paris from the early 1800s to the early 1900s. Their collective contribution to the evolution of music is extraordinary. Their work also represents an historical era, the Industrial Revolution, with the introduction of modern instrument production, complex metalworking methods, and valve technologies. And the sheer artistic beauty of their objects makes this show a must-see. Museum visitors will see Adolphe Sax’s popular saxhorn and the short-lived saxotromba, as well as masterworks like his soprano ophicleide, a grand-parade trumpet, a valve trombone in B-flat with six independent valves, a trumpet in F with and a steady general Dementia is at once a deterioration over time. huge diagnostic and About 20 percent of therapeutic challenge for dementias are called any physician, and a vascular dementia and are terribly devastating and caused by small or large dreaded condition for any strokes.
