John Ward: Consort music for five and six violsЧитать подробнее
Always stylish in whichever repertoire she chooses, Pamela's wide appeal stems from an innate love of communicating through her playing, a natural, dynamic stage presence and a sophisticated and intelligent use of her virtuosic skills.
Pamela Thorby is unique amongst recorder players in the breadth and variety of her work and is widely regarded as the UK's most stylish and creative recorder virtuoso. She can be heard on numerous recordings of music ranging from the medieval period to the present day and has toured internationally as a concerto soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. She has appeared many times as a soloist at major UK festivals and venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Snape Maltings, Usher Hall, The Sage and Cadogan Hall. She performs regularly in recital and as a soloist with leading ensembles such as the English Concert, La Serenissima and Concerto Caledonia.
Pamela's ability to assimilate many styles of music and love of improvisation have led to performances with the Perfect Houseplants and jazz pianist Huw Warren, on Karl Jenkins' hugely successful Adiemus albums, on film and TV soundtracks and she has recently released ‘Ammonite', an album of her own folk/jazz-inspired compositions. The Grand Tourists is a new, flexible group for Pamela to share her genre-hopping musicality with fellow musicians acclaimed in their field of old and new music of all kinds.
Pamela was the driving force behind the Palladian Ensemble, touring worldwide and recording ten acclaimed albums for Linn Records, which have garnered six prestigious Diapason d'Or awards.
Her solo recordings on Linn are ‘Baroque Recorder Concertos' (Linn CKD 217) with Sonnerie (Gramophone Critic's Choice); ‘Handel Recorder Sonatas' (Linn CKD 223) with Richard Egarr (BBC Music Magazine Chamber Music Disc of the Month and a Gramophone Critic's Choice); and ‘Garden of Early Delights' (Linn CKD 291) with harpist Andrew Lawrence-King ("This is Paradise indeed" Gramophone).
Pamela began teaching the recorder at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London shortly after graduating and is now a GSMD Visiting Professor, giving masterclasses abroad (most recently in Portugal, Italy and France) and in the UK (including the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, York University, Birmingham University Centre for Early Music Performance and Research, Birmingham Conservatoire and Chetham's School of Music in Manchester).
