Husband-and-wife duo Alex and Alison Davies will give a concert of music for organ, piano and
saxophone will be playing in Sidbury for the first time.
The concert, on Sunday, 14th June at 3.00pm, will take place in St Giles’ Church.
Alison will be playing the alto and soprano saxophones, and Alex will be playing the organ and
piano.
The concert opens with Marcello’s Oboe Concerto in C minor – which Alison will be playing on the
alto saxophone – and continues with movements from Mendelssohn’s Sonata No.1 in F minor and
Handel’s Organ Concerto in D minor. Marcel Dupré’s Prelude and Fugue in B Major will bring the
first half to a close.
After a short interval, there is a change of pace, with some modern, jazz-inspired pieces including
Bordel 1900 by Astor Piazzolla, Dreams by Aleksandr Chugunov and Everything is Still by Andy
Scott. The programme also includes Schwarzer Tanzer by Nigel Wood, Denis Bedard’s Sonata No
1 for alto saxophone and organ, and Ad Wammes’ Play it Cool. Programme is subject to change.
Alex and Alison both studied at Trinity College of Music, in London, and currently combine
successful careers in music with running the family bed and breakfast business.
Alex is musical director and organist at St Michael’s and runs local choir Lyme Bay Chorale, while
Alison runs Saxminster, a saxophone band that plays at a range of events in the area.
