KATE ROMANO | CLARINET, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Kate founded the Goldfield Ensemble in 2011 and is the Artistic Director of Goldfield Productions, where her passion is to make collaborative ‘adventures in sound’ that take audiences into extraordinary, boundary-pushing worlds falling outside traditional musical genres. She established the first year-long Artistic Residency at Stapleford Granary for the Ensemble and has written their five education projects, which have been seen by over 7000 children. She has  produced work for V&A Museum (Opera Passion)  Nova Music Opera, Cheltenham Festival, Bristol and Kent Universities and Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and has a special interest in transcultural, site-specific and cross-arts work.

NICOLA GOLDSCHEIDER VIOLIN

An award-wining graduate of Chetham’s School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, Nicola enjoys a busy and successful freelance performing career. She is a founder member of the outstanding Britten Sinfonia and works with many of the top London orchestras (BBC Symphony and Concert orchestra, the Philharmonia, English National Opera, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra). Her performing career has embraced broadcasts, BBC Proms and taken her round the world for more than two decades.

Nicola runs a thriving private teaching practice and regularly takes part in the innovative outreach work with Britten Sinfonia and Goldfield Ensemble. She is involved with the running of Goldfield Productions as player representative for the Goldfield Ensemble. 

RICHARD UTTLEY PIANO

Noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, Richard won the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and was represented by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) 2011-2015. He has been recognised for his ‘musical intelligence and pristine facility’ (International Record Review), ‘amazing decisiveness’, and ‘tumultuous performance’ (Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph). Richard has released three solo recital discs to critical acclaim and his playing has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC Two, BBC Four, Classic FM and Sky Arts. Recent highlights include recitals at Auditorium du Louvre, Bridgewater Hall, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Klangspuren Festival, Konzerthaus Berlin and Wigmore Hall, and tours in China and Columbia.

Highlights in 2019 include premiering a new work written for Richard by Kate Whitley, solo recitals at Music on Main festival (Vancouver), the complete Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano with Savitri Grier and Gershwin’s Concerto in F in Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Richard read Music at Clare College, Cambridge, graduating with a double first in 2008, and then studied at Guildhall School with Martin Roscoe. Richard teaches at City University, Guildhall School and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
