Die junge Saxophonistin Amy Dickson wurde in Australien geboren und hat dort und in England, wo sie heute lebt, bereits zahlreiche Preise gewonnen. Auf ihrer CD "Smile" spielt sie zusammen mit der Pianistin Catherine Milledge eigene Bearbeitungen bekannter klassischer und semiklassischer Werke. So ist etwa das Hauptthema aus dem Chaplin-Film "Modern Times" zu hören (der Titel hat dem Album seinen Namen gegeben), aber auch Werke von Rachmaninov, Faure oder Arvo Pärt.

Born in Sydney, Amy began saxophone lessons at the age of seven with Melinda Atkins and later with Mark Walton. Amy made her concerto debut at 16, and at 17 she became a recipient of the James Fairfax Australian Young Artist of the Year competition, which led to a recording of the Dubois Divertissement with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. One year later, she embarked upon an international career which has since led her to travel throughout the world as a soloist. In London, she has studied with Kyle Horch and Martin Robertson, and in the Amsterdam, with Arno Bornkamp.

She became the winner of many international competitions, and was the first saxophonist to win the Gold Medal at the Royal Overseas League Competition, the Prince’s Prize and the Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year award.

Amy now gives recitals and performs concertos throughout the world and has performed in venues including the Wigmore Hall, the Bridgewater Hall, the Purcell Room, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and the Beurs van Berlage. She has toured as a soloist with orchestras including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Amadeus Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria, and as a solo recitalist throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Amy was invited to perform at the 2005 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and has also performed at St James’ Palace, the Scottish Parliament and for former Australian Prime Minister, John Howard. As leader of the Zephirus Saxophone Quartet, Amy has also toured throughout the United Kingdom and parts of Europe and has won first prize in the ensemble section of the Royal Overseas League Competition.

A strong advocate of new music and a fervent supporter of contemporary composers, Amy has worked with composers throughout the world and has given the first performances of numerous compositions, including those by Philip Glass, Graeme Koehne, Graham Fitkin and Huw Watkins.
