Jess Gillam

We celebrated the first day of the Jubilee not in the Mall but at a concert at the Wigmore Hall by Jess Gillam, the brilliant young saxophonist, and her ensemble. Two of the pieces were by composers in the audience and the work by CPE Bach (part of the Flute Concerto in A Minor) had been adapted magnificently and crazily by Simon Parkin who was also there, so it felt like attending an experimental musical gathering, very unlike the normal formality of an evening at the Wigmore Hall. A treat.
