John Harle is an Ivor Novello Award-winning saxophonist, composer, record producer and newly-appointed Visiting Professor of Saxophone at Guildhall. His playing has been the catalyst for an outpouring of new repertoire for the saxophone, and this concert showcases new works Harle’s friends and colleagues have written for his 60th birthday. Coinciding with the release of his new book, The Saxophone (Faber Music), this is a unique opportunity to hear music by some of the most influential composers of today in a single programme, performed by a master musician.
