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 Lloyd Coleman - composer, clarinettist and Associate Music Director of the British Paraorchestra. Their musical choices include a Sabre Dance, sounds of the sea from Debussy, a 'modern classic' by Anna Meredith, the glorious finale or Sibelius Symphony no. 5 and Kraftwerk!
This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.
