Jess Gillam, Thomas Weaver by Stratton McCrady
“Saxophone sensation” (BBC Music Magazine) Jess Gillam makes her Carnegie Hall debut. This distinctive program showcases an enormous range of music both written and thoughtfully transcribed for the saxophone, including works by composers such as Meredith Monk, Piazzolla, Poulenc, and Telemann, as well as modern saxophone greats like Barbara Thompson and Gillam’s acclaimed mentor, John Harle, whose astonishing RANT! was commissioned for Gillam. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a recent star soloist from BBC’s Last Night of the Proms in Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall’s most intimate performance space.
