Performing together for the first time on this Music Network tour, this trio of extraordinary musicians has selected a programme which showcases both their virtuosity and ability to creatively adapt much-loved music to their unusual combination of instruments.
Amy Dickson, Sonoko Miriam Welde & Simon Mulligan

Incorporating elements of folk and popular music from around the world, their performances will include Gershwin’s jazz-infused Rhapsody in Blue, Ravel’s famous Bolero, and Amy Dickson’s gorgeous transcription of Philip Glass’s shimmering violin sonata, alongside a new Music Network commission by Ronan Guilfoyle.

Listen and enjoy, as metal, wood and string alchemize in the hands of these highly accomplished musicians, to produce an extraordinary musical soundscape of breath-taking beauty.

“Amy Dickson is not just an outstanding saxophonist, she’s a musician full of curiosity to explore the full potential of her instrument – thoroughly recommended.”  David Mellor – Classic FM

“One of the finest pianists I have ever had the pleasure of performing with.” Yehudi Menuhin [on Simon Mulligan]
