Brahms First Symphony at The Sands Centre

Who’s on stage

To be honest there’s not that many true ‘celebrities’ of classical music. People who have a chance of being recognised on the street. Tonight though we’ve got one – the superstar saxophonist Jess Gillam, who hails from just over the Pennines in Ulverston.

What they’re playing

Unless your’e the kind of person who writes concert blurbs you’ve probably not heard of Alexander Glazunov or Elfrida Andrée. Tonight you get to meet their music, plus there’s Johannes Brahms’ First Symphony.

Elfrida Andrée Concert Overture (11 mins)
Alexander Glazunov Saxophone Concerto (15 mins)
Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 1 (45 mins)
