Flutes in Tuscany 2023

Flutes in Tuscany 2023

Tereglio is a peaceful hill-top village in northern Tuscany. One street, one shop, one restaurant, a chapel, and a church, all surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. But once a year a group of flutists fill the village with music. We came from England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland but also Sweden and Italy. Both baroque flutes and modern flutes were represented together with an excellent team of accompanists, Aaron Burrows (piano), Julian Walker (piano/harpsichord) Julianna Antczak (cello) providing basso continuo.

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.
UM: Wow! How did you cope the first year? Read more AboutFlutes in Tuscany 2019: reflections of accompanist, Sally Birkett

Filadelfio Puglisi

Filadelfio Puglisi

Thursday 18th July will forever be remembered by me, as the day I finally met Filadelfio Puglisi.

As a somewhat lazy and spoilt pupil, I bought and played this fluteRead more about Filadelfio Puglisi[…]
