The world’s finest orchestras sought to recruit Adam Walker. Finally, the young flautist joined the prestigious London Symphony Orchestra where his magical flute has been working its spell. This Royal Academy of Music alumnus is also quite fluent in contemporary music with regular performances.
Combining their talents in an extraordinary concert, Adam Walker and James Baillieu present a daring recital that combines poetry and virtuosity. Juxtaposed with the energy of Bartók’s dance, Schubert's piece provides a melodious contrast while Messiaen’s « Cinq Leçons de Solfège à Chanter » showcases the duo’s great brio. The programme ends on a lighter note with a Poulenc sonata.
