Docklands Sinfonia is delighted to be performing the world premiere of acclaimed composer Jeffrey Wilson's new concerto Testament for saxophone and orchestra featuring Rob Buckland.
Having played the Saxophone himself for over 45 years, it is timely that Jeffery should have penned a concerto for this most iconic instrument, combining elements of improvisation with more formal compositional techniques.
The concert also features Sergei Rachmaninov's iconic Symphonic Dances and Jean Sibelius's stunning tone poem Spring Song.
