Sally Birkett interview
Accompanist: Flutes in Tuscany for the 4th time
UM:How did you become involved in Flutes in Tuscany?
SB: Liz is the mother of one of my dad’s cello pupils and we have known each other for 12 years. I cheekily offered my services to Liz as an accompanist when she posted a comment on Facebook about her local flute course hopefully being in Italy the following year!
UM: How familiar were you with flute rep before coming on the course?
SB: Not at all, really! I had accompanied flautists a handful of times at Trinity as a last minute favour to fellow students but had not really worked on repertoire with any players.
