This concert brings together two outstanding ensembles, both hailing from Manchester and both celebrating their 50th anniversary. Joining them for this festive occasion is one of British music’s brightest young stars, saxophonist Jess Gillam. She plays Glazunov’s expressive and virtuosic Concerto for Alto Saxophone. The programme also features two compelling works by young female composers, Shiva Feshareki and Caroline Shaw and concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, inspired by the composer’s rejuvenating stay in Italy in 1890.
