Rob Burton LIVE!
The second in a series of evening webinar, Rob Burton, a young and exceptional new talent to the classical saxophone scene, answers your questions about playing the saxophone, his practice routine, and being a finalist in the 2018 BBC Young Musician of the Year competition.
London-based saxophonist Rob Burton won the Woodwind Category Final of BBC Young Musician 2018 and went on to secure a place in the Grand Final at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, where he performed as concerto soloist with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
Highlights since then include performances across the UK and Channel Islands as part of the Leicester, Cheltenham, Harrogate, and Oundle International Festivals amongst many others, as well as being invited further afield as part of the European Soloists Festival in Caracas, Venezuela. He has recently appeared as soloist with ‘Orchestra of the City’, Jersey Symphony, Lambeth Wind, Harrow, and Solihull Symphony Orchestras and in prestigious London venues including St. Johns Smith Square, St. James’ Piccadilly, Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
Rob was winner of Silk Street Sinfonia’s Young Artists Concerto Competition, the 2019 Hans Schaeuble Award in Switzerland, as well as winner of the 'Sussex Prize for Woodwind' in the Royal Overseas League Annual Music Competition Final. In 2021, Rob will make his Wigmore Hall debut.
Rob currently studies Classical Saxophone on a full scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music with Huw Wiggin and privately in Zürich with Lars Mlekusch. He previously studied as Sax.co.uk scholarship holder at the Junior Guildhall School of Music, during which he was Principal Saxophone with the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain.
