Event description

Description

The London Flute Quintet is the brainchild of Dan Dixon (Bass Flute) and Liz Cutts (Alto Flute). The group’s formation in 2015 was inspired by recent exciting adaptations of symphonic and piano repertoire for members of the flute family, by members of the German group, Quintessenz.

Flute players find that, while the modern flute plays an important role within the symphony orchestra, the limitations of the standard classical chamber music repertoire can be a source of frustation. Adapting symphonic music, using extended flute techinques and involving all members of the flute family, provides an opportunity to play a limitless variety of music otherwise not generally availalbe to the flute player. In so many ways, the experience of playing in the ensemble is the closest we get to being part of a string quartet.

As the London Flute Quintet continues to evolve we are very fortunate to be able to premiere an exciting number of our own arrangements this year, including Liz’s arrangement of songs from West Side Story and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Dan’s Bach Concerto and Debussy Reverie.

The LFQ has performed extensively throught South West France and in England. All members of the group are conservatory trained ex professionals and dedicated highly experienced professional level amateurs.

“ … the performances could only be described as scintiallating. "

“ The London Flute Quintet play very ingenious and diverting arrangements of a wide range of music, a really enjoyable evening is guaranteed! If you haven’t heard them before you will be astonished by the range of sounds that these brilliant players can coax from the full gamut of flute sizes."
