Jess Gillam with... Amy Harman
Jess and Amy chat about the music they love, from Bernstein's Candide Overture to music by Vivaldi, Miles Davis and Caroline Shaw.
Jess Gillam presents her new show, with the bassoonist Amy Harman.
From her 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, Jess will be joined by young musicians to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.
Her guest is Amy Harman, principal bassoon with Aurora Orchestra and English National Opera, and their music ranges from Bernstein's Candide Overture to music by Handel and Vivaldi, some classic Miles Davis and new music by Caroline Shaw.
