It is with great sadness that parents Chris and Leszek Marcinowicz, and brother, Adam confirm the death of Hannah Marcinowicz, her husband Jonathan, and their 6 month old baby Saskia, in an air crash on Sunday. This is devastating news for everyone involved with Hannah, and we would ask for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
Hannah was passionate about her love of music and the professional career she followed as a classical saxophonist and clarinettist. She was a rare talent that brought sunshine to everyone she touched, and we will miss her and her family terribly.

Following the successful debut of her ‘Screen and Sax’ programme at Kings Place, London, in 2015 Hannah has further developed her association with the cream of British female soundtrack talent with a programme of commissions and arrangements from composers including Jennie Muskett (British Emmy winner and BAFTA nomination), Classic FM Composer in Residence, Debbie Wiseman MBE, Anne Dudley (Ivor Novello: PRS for Music Outstanding Contribution to British Music), Jocelyn Pook (Golden Globe nomination) and Rachel Portman OBE (Academy Award winner). The programme will also feature new works by Charlotte Harding and Lisa J Burgess (RCM Masters student: Composition for Screen).
The London Golden Sax Project is a unique rediscovery of London’s song heritage from the Oliver-esque street seller’s cry of ‘Will You Buy’ to the timeless classic of ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’.
Hannah Marcinowicz and award-winning British stage and screen composer, Jonathan Goldstein (BBC, Saatchi & Saatchi, Royal Shakespeare Company), collaborate to create evocative musical soundscapes celebrating the old and the new, blending the ethereal world of choir and organ with the modern world of saxophone and strings.
The material has a strong cinematic quality, making it perfect for sync, as well as a proven appeal to all ages, making it ideal for broadcast, performance and sales.
The recordings feature an orchestra specially assembled from principal players of the major London orchestras, and singers drawn from The Sixteen, Tenebrae and The Tallis Scholars. West End Musical Director, Stacey Watton, conducts.

Hailed by The Times as ‘a superb young saxophonist’, Hannah Marcinowicz made her Wigmore Hall debut in 2008. Since then, she has performed as a soloist at venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Barbican Centre to great critical acclaim.
She has performed with the UK’s leading orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Northern Sinfonia and London Concert Orchestra. A regular performer at the BBC Proms, she has appeared as a featured soloist under Sir Colin Davis and Paul Daniel. Her international performances include concertos and recitals in the Middle East and Far East. She has also appeared as a guest soloist with the European Union Chamber Orchestra.
Hannah frequently records for film, television and radio. She is featured as a soloist on the soundtrack for the United Arab Emirates Pavilion at the Milan World Expo in 2015. Hannah is currently collaborating on a solo album project with the award-winning stage and screen composer, Jonathan Goldstein.
A former Purcell School pupil, Hannah graduated with first-class honours from the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied both saxophone and clarinet. Numerous awards, including a major scholarship from the Leverhulme Trust, enabled her to continue her conservatoire studies in Paris, with international soloist, Jean-Yves Fourmeau. She was awarded the prestigious Médaille d’Or twice.
Hannah has a profound passion for sharing her musical skills and helping educate and bring hope to people who would otherwise never be exposed to Western classical music. On a recent concert tour to India, she devoted all her spare time to working in the slums with orphaned children and trafficked women.
Always up for an adventure, Hannah recently climbed Kilimanjaro and performed at the summit, despite the lack of oxygen!
Hannah is able to offer online session work on all saxophones and clarinets.
