Jess Gillam with... Belle Chen
Jess and Belle share music by Korngold and Sibelius, prepared piano by John Cage and Aphex Twin, and Herbie Hancock playing Ravel.
Jess Gillam presents her new show, with the former BBC Introducing pianist and sound artist Belle Chen, and their 30-minute musical journey includes Korngold's Violin Concerto, music for prepared piano by John Cage and Aphex Twin, Sibelius' 7th Symphony and Herbie Hancock playing Ravel.
From musical beginnings in a carnival band, to being the first ever saxophone finalist in BBC Young Musician, and appearances at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and at this year’s BAFTA awards, Jess is one of today’s most engaging and charismatic classical performers. Each week on This Classical Life, she is joined by another young musician to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.
This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.
