It is with great sadness that Chez can 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 Chez - artists, our clients, colleagues, their friends and family - and we would ask for your support and understanding at this difficult time.

Hannah was passionate about her love of music and the service she provided through Chez. Her family wants to continue the business in her memory and to fulfil all of Chez’s existing commitments. However, due to the tragic circumstances surrounding Hannah’s death, we are unable to retrieve much of the vital information we need to contact people. Could clients, artists, and colleagues please contact us through or call 020 7183 1690, and we will do everything we can to respond.

All media questions should be directed to Guy Smith at Newgate Communications on 07850 771900.

Hannah Marcinowicz
Chez founder and virtuoso saxophonist

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, and with the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Philharmonic 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, and as a guest soloist with the European Union Chamber Orchestra.

Hannah has also developed a strong association with the cream of British female soundtrack talent with her ‘Screen & Sax’ project, which was launched at Kings Place, London, as part of the ‘Women of the World’ series. For this project, she developed a brand partnership with the fashion brand Dior, who loaned her a dress for a new commission inspired by the current collection.

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.

Always up for an adventure, Hannah has climbed Kilimanjaro and performed at the summit, despite the lack of oxygen!
