Originally written for Saxophone Quartet, Arachnophobie is one of Maxime Aulio’s first compositions. It is a humorous allusion to his fear of spiders: his own brother – who had a passion for reptiles and other unusual pets – used to collect tarantulas in terrariums.

As this score was first written for friends with whom Maxime was studying at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional in Toulouse (France), Arachnophobie is therefore a simple musical amusement.
