Former BBC Young Musician finalist and now BBC broadcaster Jess Gillam joins London Mozart Players in two spectacular works for saxophone including Nyman’s electrifying ‘Where the Bee Dances’. Gillam brings virtuosity and ‘life-affirming talent’, as described in the BBC Young Musician final, to an evening that takes in Glazunov’s romantic and beautifully lyrical Saxophone Concerto. The programme is completed by an LMP favourite – Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony No.35.
Gillam burst onto the music scene in 2016 as the first saxophonist ever to reach the final of the BBC Young Musician competition. She has wowed audiences and inspired young musicians with her passion for music ever since – her first album, Rise, released in April 2019, shot to No.1 in the UK’s Official Classical Charts, while her second album Time was released in autumn 2020. If you thought the saxophone was just for jazz, think again: this will be an extraordinary night of music-making from a Classical Brit-winning soloist and an internationally celebrated orchestra.
