Paul Edmund-Davies established his international reputation as flautist and soloist in the twenty years that he was Principal Flute of the London Symphony Orchestra. Conductors with whom he has performed concerti include Leonard Bernstein, Rostropovich, Pierre Boulez and Kent Nagano and he has played in Chamber Music ensembles with André Previn.
As well as performing as a soloist with both the LSO and ECO, he has also appeared as guest Principal with many London orchestras and has recorded regularly, as both an orchestral player and a soloist with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
For the last ten years Paul has toured extensively, giving recitals, concerti and classes in America, Europe, Canada, Australasia, the Middle East and the Far East.
Paul has also co-written and performed on a cross-over projects with Neil Percy, Principal percussionist with the LSO. Their disc, Ball and Biscuit, was released in 1999 on the Black Box label. Their latest disc, Cuvée Acoustique was released in May 2006 and a play along version for one or two flutes (Flute Fusions) was published by Kevin Mayhew in January 2007, giving flautists the opportunity to experience different rhythms from around the World.
After 16 years as Professor of Flute at the Guildhall School of Music, Paul took up a similar position at the Royal College of Music. He has also edited several books of music entitled The Flautist’s Collection and has completed editing and recording the complete Flute Sonatas of J. S. Bach and G. F. Handel (consisting of score, parts and CD with complete performance and play along version) the Telemann Fantasias, the two unaccompanied Partitas by J. S. and C. P. E. Bach and the Canonic Sonatas and Sonatas for two flutes by Telemann. He is currently working on editions of the complete flute works of the hitherto uncelebrated Guiseppe Rabboni.
In June 2007 his latest book, ‘The 28 Day Warm up Book for all Flautists……eventually!’ was published. This 150 page volume with four sections on Sonority, Fingers, Articulation and Intervals is entirely original and in a logical and musical way helps to address and solve numerous playing related issues. It is now in its second edition.
Paul has performed on more than 50 film sound tracks, including classics such as Star Wars (episodes 1 and 2), Aliens, Braveheart, Harry Potter, Who framed Roger Rabbit? and Honey I shrunk the kids.
As of 22/09/05, Paul took up the position of Principal Flute with the Philharmonia Orchestra and in January 2011 was appointed as Principal Flute of English National Opera.
Thomas Hancox works regularly as guest principal flute with the UK’s leading orchestras,including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra,Philharmonia Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, English National Opera, and the English Chamber Orchestra, amongst others. Solo and chamber work has led to collaborations with artists and ensembles including the Allegri and Sacconi string quartets, Trevor Pinnock, Ilya Gringolts, Vladimir Mendelssohn, and Matthew Barley, with recitals in the Cheltenham, Spitalfields, St Davids, Canterbury, and Oxford Chamber Music festivals.
Dedicated to bringing music to all, Thomas is Chief Executive of CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust, a charity that introduces and makes available chamber music to young people. With his harpist duo partner, Rachel Wick, he is also an artist for Live Music Now,a charity that brings the joy and power of live music to those who otherwise would not be able to access it.
He currently teaches privately in London, having previously taught at King’s College London and the Dragon School, Oxford. Additionally he is a tutor on the ever-popular Flute Kitchen summer course in Harrogate.
Thomas read music at St Peter’s College, Oxford, from where he graduated with a first, before pursuing further studies in Paris with Patrick Gallois, and subsequently at the Royal Academy of Music with Paul Edmund-Davies and Samuel Coles, finishing with a distinction and the honorary DipRAM. He was generously supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, the Leverhulme Trust, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Musicians Benevolent Fund, and the Craxton Memorial Trust.
Christine Lorriman is a well respected flautist and teacher in the Lancashire/Yorkshire area. In 1975 she was awarded a County Scholarship to study with Patricia Morris and Atarah Ben-Tovim. She continued her studies at Huddersfield School of Music with Alan Lockwood (BBC Philharmonic) and on completion of her degree she was awarded a distinction and the Turner Prize for Orchestral Playing. She is currently principal flute with both the Haffner Orchestra and the Promenade Concert Orchestra.
Christine has been a tutor to the Lancashire County Youth Ensembles for many years and is now the Orchestral Manager for the Lancashire Youth Symphony Orchestra. Since 2001 Christine has been a tutor on the annual international “Flute Kitchen” summer course in Harrogate.
Until very recently, John Alley was Principal Keyboard Player of the London Symphony Orchestra, with whom he has played just about everywhere. Indeed, he recently returned from a very successful trip to the west coast of the USA with Michael Tilson Thomas.
He has performed in countless Proms and has worked with many of the twentieth century’s major composer/conductors, including Boulez, Berio, Benjamin, Henze, Lutoswaski, Oliver Knussen, and Thomas Ades.
A ‘minor’ sensation occurred in the performance of Shostakovich’s ‘Suite for the Hypothetically Murdered’ when he drank a pint of beer in the middle of a cadenza!
He has recorded extensively for television, radio, and disc and played on the soundtracks films like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Braveheart, Little Women and (the new) Jane Eyre. He has contributed to over thirty volumes of music including Rabboni flute sonatas and the Arban trumpet studies, for which he wrote the accompaniments.
The Flute Kitchen is a stimulating flute course for those from around Grade 4 standard up to post-diploma level.
As ever, it will be a highly stimulating week – not just for your flute playing, but for your musicianship and performance in general. The atmosphere of the course is a relaxed and non-competitive one. All of the tutors aim to help each participant develop individually, enhancing their confidence and ability.
The beautiful and historic spa town of Harrogate, with its parks and gardens, castles and abbeys and closeness to the breathtaking scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, is an ideal venue for the course; relaxing, invigorating and inspiring.
We accept that many course members have a great distance to travel. Although we cannot offer accommodation on the Saturday night preceding the course, rooms can be available for the Thursday night at the end of the course (over 18s only). Harrogate has many hotels and B & B’s and we will be only too happy to help with any arrangements should you wish to arrive on the Saturday preceding the course.
