Following Cambridgeshire saxophonist Rob Burton’s prize-winning performances in the 2018 ‘BBC Young Musician of the Year’ competition, where he won the televised Woodwind Final and progressed to the Grand Final, playing a concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Rob returns to his ‘second home’ to perform an afternoon concert at Southwark Cathedral on April 30th. This is a FREE concert at 3.15-4.00pm.
Rob will present an exciting and varied programme with his pianist, Christine Zerafa, who has already achieved exceptional international success as a soloist and ensemble player.
Performing music ranging from beautiful Baroque to exciting jazz/flamenco fusion, it’s a concert for not only classical music lovers but lovers of any type of music and especially anyone intrigued as to how versatile classical saxophone can be!
Rob is now in his second year studying Classical Saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music under Huw Wiggin. Since the Final, Rob has performed Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto with Silk Street Sinfonia as well as solo recitals at the Cheltenham Music Festival 2018, the Charles Wood Festival in Northern Ireland, Windsor Castle and will be playing at Buckingham Palace in May.
