About

I am Peter Robertson, a flute player based in London, but I happily travel all around the UK and the world to play music.

** ** NIELSEN CONCERTO - Come hear me playing the Nielsen flute concerto with the Oxford Chamber Orchesta on 5 March 2016 in the centre of Oxford. Click Events to find out more. ** **

I am currently Principal Flute in the Ealing Symphony Orchestra in London, and with the Oxford Chamber Orchestra.

I play a very special gold flute made by Haynes and wooden flutes by Chris Abell in Mopane and African Blackwood with a headjoint made by Dr Robert Bigio.

My upcoming ambitions are to complete a recording project, to get our new wind quintet playing to a really high standard, and to play a few more concertos. I'm particularly liking the new concerto "Departures" by Hatzis, and I'd love to play the Ibert again.

Cantabile from Vivaldi's Flute Concerto in D major, 'Il Gardellino' played on flute+alto flute
Woke up on a sunny Sunday morning with all the birds making noises in the trees. I felt like playing my alto flute, and thought about trying this. Seems to work. Reminds me how different the intonation adjustments are between my gold haynes and the alto!
Flute: Wm. S. Haynes #5
Alto: Trevor James

Next day, I snuck back to the - then very very cold! - church (Holy Trinity, Matfen, UK) as the acoustic was nice and the neighbours in the adjacent hotel room has their "do not disturb" sign on making me feel bad about playing in the hotel room. This was the only music I had with me, so here it is warts and all - all I could bare to play before the cold was too much to bear! Please forgive the blip/cut in the middle where I knocked the recorder off the light it was balanced on :-p

Finale Alla Gigue from Divertimento by William Alwyn
A little blast of the 4th movement William Alwyn's 1940 composition Divertimento. I need to work on it some more. Perhaps a little faster and less forceful.

Alwyn was born in Northampton and aged of 15 he entered the Royal Academy of Music in London to study flute and composition. He was a virtuoso flautist and polyglot.
