Jess Gillam is joined by conductor and violinist Stephanie Childress, to swap tracks and share the music they love.
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 the conductor and violinist Stephanie Childress who has been described as a 'seriously exciting (and unnervingly young) talent'. Their musical choices take us from Poulenc to Rachmaninov via the Beach Boys and a Doris Day classic.
This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.
