Huw Wiggin, Saxophone
Commonwealth Musician of the Year, First Prize and Gold Medal winner of the 2014 Royal Over-seas League Annual Music Competition, Huw Wiggin is one of the most popular saxophonists of his generation.
He has performed in venues as far afield as the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing – where he gave recitals and a concerto performance of Eric Coates’s Saxo Rhapsody – as well as those closer to home such as London’s Wigmore Hall. Other past highlights include appearances at Brighton, Newbury, Henley, Ripon and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. His performance of Milton Babbitt’s Accompanied Recitative was broadcast by BBC Radio3 on ‘Hear and Now’ to celebrate the composer’s centenary.
In March 2018 Huw featured on ‘BLAKE, The Anniversary Album’, conducted and orchestrated by James Sherlock. Other collaborations include working with singer Laura Wright, harpist Oliver Wass and pianist John Lenehan. John and Oliver feature on Huw’s debut album ‘Reflections’ to be released on Orchid Classics in June 2018.
Huw also gives regular concerts throughout the UK and abroad with the Ferio Saxophone Quartet.
