Jess Gillam is a pioneer, a Classical Brit winner and one of the most exciting saxophonists working today. Jess oversees a special programme inspired by the energy of nature, embracing the power of the sea, the ethereal beauty of sunrise, and the vibrancy of skylarks and dancing bees in spring sky. The power of the natural world is perfectly matched by Jess’ talent and enthusiasm, Camerata’s skilled playing and Gábor’s inspirational conducting.
