Jess Gillam with... Heloise Werner
Jess Gillam and Heloise Werner share music from Shostakovich's Festive Overture to Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra, plus Meredith Monk and Graham Fitkin.
Jess Gillam is joined by the singer and composer Heloise Werner, a member of the young new music ensemble, The Hermes Experiment. Their music includes Shostakovich's Festive Oveture and Strauss' epic tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra, plus tracks by Meredith Monk and Graham Fitkin.
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.
