Curated by internationally renowned pianist Amira Fouad, Music in the Studio is set in Dubai Opera’s acoustically flawless studio, allowing for a more atmospheric and unmissable experience between the musicians and their audiences.
Named the UK’s Young Australian of the Year 2016 and Grammy™ nominated twice, British-Australian Sony Artist, Amy Dickson, made history by becoming the first saxophonist to win a Classic Brit Award and the first ever Australian to win the Mastercard Breakthrough Artist of the Year award. This followed the release of her third album, Dusk and Dawn, which attained the coveted No. 1 position in the UK Classical Album Charts. Recognized 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.”
For her UAE debut Amy Dickson will be collaborating with Music in the Studio curator and concert pianist, Amira Fouad, to perform music by Debussy, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Milhaud, Piazzolla arranged for saxophone and piano.
