With her natural energy, infectious personality and talent to spare, Jess Gillam was the first saxophonist to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician and the youngest-ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms. An extraordinary talent, she has already been awarded honours for services to music. 

And can she play. 

Her natural effervescence makes her the perfect choice for Michael Nyman’s Where the Bee Dances. This marriage of saxophone and orchestra launches with expressive, driving rhythms and an irresistible arrangement. Gillam brings her vivid and bright playing to the piece, losing herself in its swirling drive. Don’t miss this exuberant and entirely original performer.
