Joshua Bell is an award winning violinist
Twice GRAMMY-nominated Amy Dickson made history by becoming the first saxophonist and the first Australian to win a Classic Brit Award, as 2013 MasterCard Breakthrough Artist of the Year. This followed the release of her third album, Dusk and Dawn, which attained the coveted No. 1 position in the UK Classical Album Charts. In January 2016 Amy Dickson was named Young Australian of the Year in the UK. Recognised widely for her remarkable, distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, Gramophone has described her as "a player with a difference who has an individual and unusual tone, luscious, silky-smooth, sultry and voluptuous by turns; her phrasing is beautifully finished, her control of dynamic infinitely subtle."
As a soloist Amy performs throughout the world with many of the great orchestras. As a highly sought-after chamber musician she has performed in prestigious series and she regularly appears at international chamber music festivals. As a Sony Classical recording artist Amy has released six albums on the label which showcase a diverse repertoire highlighting the versatility of her musicianship and the varied capabilities of the saxophone.
Amy is deeply committed to the development of new repertoire for the saxophone and has made a substantial contribution to the orchestral, chamber and solo repertoire.
