A Place in Time: Jess Gillam and LMP

Friday 30 May 2025

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Full of memorable tunes and toe-tapping dances, LMP and the electrifying saxophonist Jess Gillam bring the heart and soul of folk-inspired music to life in this concert.

From the Scottish Isles in Macmillan’s punchy Saxophone Concerto to the pastoral English countryside of Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Greensleeves, the programme showcases the rich variety of folk-influenced classical music. As well as spanning the globe, tonight’s music also traverses time, transporting you from Dowland’s olde lute-inspired Flow My Tears to the contemporary pizzicato in Jessie Montgomery’s Strum.

Jess Gillam, known for her charismatic presenting style on BBC Radio 3’s This Classical Life, will guide you through the programme with engaging spoken introductions.
