Signature Shostakovich

Tomasi Fanfares Liturgiques (17')
Glazunov Saxophone Concerto (13')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Shostakovich Symphony No.10 (46')

Andris Poga conductor
Jess Gillam saxophone

In 2016, Jess Gillam became the first saxophonist ever to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician of the Year – and she just keeps getting better. This engaging young star from Cumbria is the kind of artist who makes everything she plays light up, and we’re delighted to welcome her back for Glazunov’s nostalgic concerto. We’ll then hear from Glazunov’s star pupil, Shostakovich, as guest conductor Andris Poga returns to explore the dark shadows and raw emotion of the gripping Tenth Symphony. The brass and percussion sections of the Orchestra blow open the concert with the uplifting Fanfares Liturgiques by French composer, Henri Tomasi.
