Florilegium - 25th Anniversary

Lucie Skeaping is joined by flautist Ashley Solomon to mark the 25th anniversary of the ensemble Florilegium, with excerpts from their many recordings of Telemann, Haydn and Bach.

Lucie Skeaping chats to the award-winning flautist and recorder player Ashley Solomon, professor and Head of Historical Performance at the Royal College of Music and director of the ensemble Florilegium. The group, founded in 1991, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. In the last quarter of a century, Florilegium has toured worldwide, released an impressive number of recordings and embarked on a fascinating (and ongoing) project working with native Indians in Bolivia. The programme includes excerpts from some of Florilegium's recordings including music by Bach, Telemann, Haydn, Monteclair, Couperin, Pergolesi and the Bolivian composer Roque Jacinto de Chavarria.
