A ground-breaking recording of Philip Glass’s most iconic music in celebration of his 80th birthday, transcribed for saxophone by Classic BRIT Award-winning classical saxophonist, featuring his violin concerto, violin sonata for which Dickson had to learn a new technique to master the work; circular breathing. Two more works feature in the album, both taken from Glass’ soundtrack to the ‘The Hours’, which won the “Best Original Music” award at the British Academy Film Awards in 2003. ‘Escape’ and ‘Morning Passages’ are pieces of intimate chamber music, both arranged by Amy’s husband, composer Jamie Barclay.

“Her Concerto is a kaleidoscope of colour; the phrases blend together with mechanical precision. Dickson captures the explosive emotion, particularly in the second movement. Her collaborators…are on fine form. It is quite literally, a breath-taking performance.”
