Huw Wiggin, Saxophone

Commonwealth Musician of the Year, First Prize and Gold Medal winner of the Royal OverSeas League Annual Music Competition, Huw Wiggin is one of the most popular saxophonists of his generation.

He has performed in venues as far afield as the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing - where he gave recitals and a concerto performance of Eric Coates's Saxo Rhapsody - as well as those closer to home such as London's Wigmore Hall. Other past highlights include appearances at Brighton, Newbury, Henley, Ripon and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. His performance of Milton Babbitt's Accompanied Recitative was broadcast by BBC Radio 3 on 'Hear and Now' to celebrate the composer's centenary.

Huw is professor of saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music in London and has given master classes at the Royal Northern College of Music, Chetham's School of Music, NAFA in Singapore and the Universities of Calgary and Lethbridge in Canada. He has also been a member of the judging panel for major competitions including the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition. A keen educator, he is also an ambassador for the Henley Music School.

 

John Lenehan, piano

With more than 70 albums to his credit, reflecting an enormous variety of genres and styles, John Lenehan ranks as one of the most versatile pianists on the classical scene today. Praised by the New York Times for his "great flair and virtuosity" and the (London) Times - "a masterly recital", John Lenehan has appeared in concerts throughout the World from Abu Dhabi to Zurich and from Aberdeen to Zimbabwe. As a soloist he has appeared with orchestras such as the London Symphony at the Barbican and the Royal Philharmonic in the Royal Albert Hall. John Lenehan has also collaborated with some of the leading instrumentalists of our time and is recognised as an outstanding and versatile chamber musician.
