Amy Dickson Saxophone by Candlelight
Saturday 26 April
£25 - £45 seats
£60 premium tickets
Classic Brit Award winner and Grammy nominated Amy Dickson performs at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with her first recital in London since having picked up her 2013 Mastercard Breakthrough Artist of the Year Classic Brit award at the Royal Albert Hall last year.
Since the success of her No. 1 chart album Dusk & Dawn, Sydney-born saxophonist Amy has been touring internationally only to pit-stop back home in London for brief appearances on TV (performances on BBC Breakfast, The One Show etc.) and also to record her new album due to be released this summer by Sony Classical.
‘She has an individual and unusual tone, luscious, silky-smooth, sultry and voluptuous by turns; her phrasing is beautifully finished, her control of dynamic infinitely subtle. She plays very songfully, is often gentle and restrained, at times sounding like the chalumeaux of a clarinet. But she can rise to a passionate climax, as in Danza de la moza donosa,or slinkily respond to Debussy’s La plus que lente.’
