I play 2nd Flute/Piccolo: my first job was in The Orchestra of Scottish Opera, I then moved to The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; then the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and returned to Scottish Opera in 2016. It’s great being back in this wonderful orchestra and, in particular, to play with such a fine Principal Flute, Richard Blake.
I have chosen all my tracks from Scottish Opera recordings showing the wide range of repertoire covered by the company.
