Jess Gillam, saxophone
Jonathan Fisher, piano

Programme includes music by Debussy, Ravel, John
Williams, Chick Corea, Michael Nyman, Dave Heath,
Graham Fitkin and Phil Woods.

This supremely talented and charismatic young saxophone player caused a sensation when she won the 2016 BBC Young Musician Woodwind Final and was a runner up in the grand final. Since then appearances all over Britain, with, among others, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Jools Holland’s R&B Orchestra and on BBC Radio 3 and 4 have marked Jess Gillam out as a rising star. Her eclectic programme really shows off the saxophone’s wide range of colours, from Debussy’s dreamy impressionism to the jazz-inspired sounds of Chick Corea and John Williams.
