with Ashley Solomon

We are delighted to welcome Professor Ashley Solomon to lead a workshop on baroque and classical flute music. Head of Historical Performance at London’s Royal College of Music and director of the baroque ensemble Florilegium, Ashley brings over 20 years’ experience working with original instruments to this workshop.

Ashley will coach participants in playing music by composers such as Bach, Telemann, Vivaldi, Handel and Mozart in an appropriate style on the modern flute.

The workshop is aimed at intermediate to advanced players who should feel free to bring along a favourite baroque or classical piece, as there may be time for Ashley to hear participants in a short performance class.

 


Instrument and minimum grade: Open to flute players of all ages, from grade 5 to diploma.
