RICHARD EGARR - harpsichord, piano


Pamela Thorby has an international reputation as one of the most versatile and stylish recorder players of her generation.   Her virtuoso playing can be heard on numerous CD's, ranging from the medieval period to the present day.   Pamela is perhaps best known for her baroque playing with the Palladian Ensemble (with whom she has recorded nine acclaimed albums), but also as a soloist with the English Concert and many other eminent UK orchestras.   Her Baroque Concertos CD for Linn Records received outstanding reviews in 2003

Pamela was a prize-winning student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and returned to teach the recorder as a principal instrument within a few years of graduating.   Pamela and Richard began their musical partnership as students together at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, leading to acclaimed duo recitals at the Purcell Room and the Wigmore Hall in London.   They have appeared in concert and on disc together on many occasions as their respective careers progressed, but this is the first time that they have recorded together as a duo.
