RUSH HOUR #6: RE-DRESS
#CONCERTLAB
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Dave Heath Out of the Cool 
Pierre Jalbert Into the Tempest (UK premiere)
Michael Nyman Where the Bee Dances 

Tim Murray conductor
Jess Gillam  saxophone 

Jess Gillam made history in 2016 as the first ever saxophonist finalist of BBC Young Musician of the Year. Her inimitable style here meets an orchestra newly asking how their clothing might represent their own collective identity – and that of the music.

Out of the Cool welcomes Jess to stamp her personality on its sparsity of markings inspired by Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Stepping Into the Tempest, the orchestra stirs up a storm of sound. For his energetic saxophone concerto, Nyman re-imagines Shakespeare’s ‘Where the bee sucks’ from The Tempest and the dance-like flight of bees around nectar.
