Gerard McChrystal Music for saxophone

Saxophonist Gerard McChrystal has performed in over 30 countries including USA, Korea, India, Japan, South Africa, Azerbaijan, New Zealand, Indonesia as well as much of Europe/UK. He has worked with Philip Glass, The Soweto String Quartet, vocal group Anuna, Rambert Dance Co. and many orchestras including The Philharmonia and the Orchestra of San Francisco Ballet. Ten years in development Stand-Up is Gerard’s newest project. It is a combination of solo saxophone works and pieces for saxophone and electronics. Every work is accessible and inclusive. The sublime beauty of atmospheric works such as Karen Tanaka’s Night Bird and Andy Scott’s My Mountain Top contrast with the freshness of Tony Davis’ dance inspired Iguacu, Come Down and Dance. Gerard will also perform duos by Telemann and Ian Wilson using effects that have to be heard to be believed. Virtuosic works by Paganini and Barry Cockroft include amazing techniques like circular breathing and slap-tongue. Multi-layered works, performed live, using a loop station complete this unique cutting edge project. This project is supported by Creative Leicestershire.
