The Hallé - Rachmaninov’s Romantic Lyricism on Thursday 16th January 2020
John Adams - Saxophone Concerto
Rachmaninov - Symphony No.2
Jess Gillam, saxophone
Two more Hallé debuts. Just 20, Jess Gillam is already a household name, as Woodwind Winner and Finalist of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year and charismatic soloist in the 2018 Last Night of the Proms. From Cumbria, and educated at Chetham’s School and the Royal Northern College, she’ll be playing the saxophone concerto by John Adams. Arguably the USA’s greatest living composer, this work is his response to jazz legends John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy. On the podium is Kazuki Yamada, Principal Conductor of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo and Principal Guest Conductor of the CBSO, who conducts Rachmaninov’s late-Romantic Second Symphony laced with the long-breathed melodies, tinged with melancholy, so characteristic of the composer.
