After winning a Classic BRIT award in 2013, proving the saxophone can be an important classical instrument, Amy Dickson is taking it to more familiar pop territory on her new album.Trained at the Royal College of Music in London, Dickson proved her classical music prowess on an earlier album that featured her own arrangements of a violin concerto by Philip Glass and piece by John Tavener.That and her work on other albums and with orchestras around the world led her to win the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award at the Classic BRITs -- an award whose previous winners include violinists Nicola Benedetti and Alina Ibragimova.Dickson started learning the saxophone when she was so young that she had to work out a quirky way of holding such a large instrument. Dickson's talents are not limited to music.
