Stravaganza Stravaganza Ryan Bancroft Conductor Jess Gillam Saxophone BBC National Orchestra of Wales Debussy Jeux Sir Karl Jenkins Stavaganza (world premiere) Ives Central Park in the Dark Copland Appalachian Spring A programme that delights in dance and young romance, with a new work by Karl for the brilliant saxophonist and musical evangelist, Jess Gillam. Conductor Ryan Bancroft comments how rooted so much of this extraordinary music is in the everyday, such as 'a game of tennis, partners ambling home late, a young couple getting married'. This is music that transforms the familiar into the fantastical with a blend of dance and theatre. Jess Gillam brings her inimitable energy and advocacy to Karl Jenkins' new work for saxophone and orchestra - a must for any Welsh musical calendar!
