Fantasia and Jess Gillam

19:30, Saturday 13 April 2024

St Gabriel's Church, Warwick Square, Pimlico, London SW1V 2AD

Saxophonist Jess Gillam returns to Fantasia Orchestra for a vibrant and virtuosic evening of music. Jess brings two pieces linked by Scotland: Dave Heath's dance-filled The Celtic and Scottish composer James MacMillan's Saxophone Concerto. The haunting and meditative On the Nature of Daylight, by Max Richter, here for saxophone and strings, will float through the beautiful gothic arches of St Gabriel's Pimlico - as will Barber's Adagio for Strings in the second half. The programme is bookended by two works that show off the strings of Fantasia Orchestra: Anna Clyne's Stride and Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.

Anna Clyne - Stride
Max Richter - On the Nature of Daylight
Dave Heath - The Celtic

James MacMillan - Saxophone Concerto
Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Serenade for Strings
