This distinctive program showcases an enormous range of music both written and thoughtfully transcribed for the saxophone, including works by composers such as Meredith Monk, Piazzolla, Poulenc, and Telemann, as well as modern saxophone greats like Barbara Thompson and Gillam’s acclaimed mentor, John Harle, whose astonishing RANT! was commissioned for Gillam.
