A poor saxophonist lost a spring and it made Bolero solo sound exceptionally weird

This is what happens when your instrument well and truly lets you down. You’ve never heard Ravel sound quite like this.
When saxophonist Jack Marquardt stepped up to tackle a pretty hectic solo in Ravel's Bolero, he was not expecting the troubling the noise that came out. As he explains in the description of this video:
"Unbeknownst to me, a spring popped off my soprano saxophone right before I picked it up. Please enjoy the epic and profound disaster that followed."
We will, Jack. We will.
