Barbara Dickson was born on September 27, 1947 in Dunfermline, Scotland. In the 1960's she began making her name as part of the burgeoning Scottish folk scene of the time alongside Jack Beck, Archie Fisher and Rab Noakes. Turning professional in 1969, Barbara cut three acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful folk albums for Decca Records. On the advice of Hamisch Imlach she moved to the north of England to expand her career on the folk circuit. Fate intervened in 1974 when friend Willy Russell offered her the singing role in the hit Beatles' musical "John Paul George Ringo…& Bert". Hits such as "Answer Me", "Another Suitcase In Another Hall" and "January February" followed throughout the late 70's and well into the 1980's, with regular appearances on TV in shows such as "Scotch And Wry" and "The Two Ronnies". By 1985 Barbara was selling out major venues such as London's Royal Albert Hall as she enjoyed her first number one, "I Know Him So Well", with Elaine Paige.

A ground-breaking recording of some of Philip Glass’s most iconic music, transcribed for saxophone by Classic BRIT Award-winning classical saxophonist, Amy Dickson, in celebration of Philip Glass’s 80th birthday. Amy Dickson’s love for Philip Glass started 10 years ago when she discovered his violin concerto, a work which features on this album. This expressive work is arranged for saxophone by Dickson herself, as is the violin sonata for which Dickson had to learn a new technique to master the work; circular breathing.

Freddie Dickson is a London born musician who apparently sings "like someone has jabbed a blade into his vena cava." Signed to Columbia Records in 2014, Dickson cut ties after feeling he was becoming lost in the major label machine. He has since re-recorded and written a bunch of new songs that make up his debut album 'Panic Town,' a collection of modern gothic anti-anthems.

A ground-breaking recording of some of Philip Glass's most iconic music, transcribed for saxophone by Classic BRIT Award-winning classical saxophonist, Amy Dickson, in celebration of Philip Glass s 80th birthday. This album continues Amy Dickson's in-depth exploration of the works of leading contemporary composer, Philip Glass, who celebrates his 80th birthday in January 2017. Amy Dickson's fascination with Philip Glass's music began 10 years ago when she discovered Glass's Violin Concerto. After many hours transcribing the work for the saxophone and learning circular breathing in order to master the work, Amy recorded the Concerto on soprano saxophone in 2008 and this recording has been remastered for this release. Last year, Amy set herself a further challenge - one more difficult than the original - to transcribe Glass's Violin Sonata. She has also recorded two pieces from the film 'The Hours', which have been arranged for saxophone and piano especially for this album.

When it comes to the soprano saxophone, some of us might think right off the bat of New Orleans legend Sidney Bechet, which is good. But most think of Kenny G, which is not so good. When it comes to women who play the saxophone, we might think of Candy Dulfer, who is definitely a good player. However, she has a tendency to be ruthlessly commercial and suave, and perhaps that's also not so good. With Australian Amy Dickson we discover a female soprano saxophonist who is offering something far different from either of these mixed options; her main focus is with classical literature, and Dickson has a luscious, creamy tone that sounds somewhere between a clarinet and a flute, reflecting the instrument in the light of the intentions of its creator, Adolphe Sax; even Bechet would have found it tough to beat that action.

“During this visit, these young ladies were so obliging as to sing me a Salve regina, lately set by their father, in duo. It is an exquisite composition, full of grace, taste and propriety.” What more could one ask of an antiphon than that which Charles Burney found in an impromptu performance by Hasse’s daughters during a visit to their father in Vienna in 1772? Hasse composed several settings of the Salve regina of which Reinhard Goebel has chosen two for his interesting programme of vocal and instrumental pieces by the composer.

Two arias include obbtigato instruments. The violin version of the better known setting of the same text with piano obbligato k505. It is the soprano version of the long aria sung by an mezzo or tenor Idamante in Idomeneo. While not quite as phenomenally beautiful as k505, it is both lively and demanding, requiring virtuoso contributions from conductor, orchestra, violinist and soprano. For k505, best that I have heard is Ameling/Dalton Baldwin/Edo de Waart (see my review). Hendricks/Tate/Jose Luis Garcia and the ECO are equally good in the violin setting.
