INTERNATIONAL PRIZE WINNERS’ CONCERT
We are extremely pleased to be continuing the series featuring international prize winners from the field of early music, including the recorder, in 2020. The wonderfully talented recorder player Tabea Debus lives in the UK and is one of the most exciting young players in the world of early music. But that’s not all – Tabea is also passionate about contemporary music and has premièred numerous commissioned works. She is a revelation whose ability and convincing musicality touches listeners. Tabea was awarded with the first prize at the 2019 Moeck International Solo Recorder Competition.
Andrea Buccarella was born in Rome, studied in Italy and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where he specialised in the organ, in orchestral and choral conducting and the harpsichord. He has led the wonderfully musical Abchordis Ensemble since 2012. In 2015, Andrea won first place at the Göttingen Händel Competition for solo harpsichord and was also the first-prize winner at the prestigious Early Music International Competition Musica Antiqua Bruges in 2018.
Both artists will be performing solos and have a few additional surprises up their sleeves.
Includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, Dani Howard, Freya Waley-Cohen and Alastair Penman.
