The saxophone group have been broadcast by Radio France on the programmes Generation Young Talent and Alla Breve and have recently released their first CD, Utópico. As Junior Fellow at the Royal College of Music, Jonathan is leading a project with the aim of developing and exploring the saxophone’s mixed chamber music repertoire, through concerts and workshops during the course of the year.

Jonathan has received awards from the BBC Performing Arts Fund, the Laubach Masterclass and most recently was awarded a Maisie Lewis Award by The Musicians’ Company, a Star Award from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and a Senior Soloist award from the Hattori Foundation.
