Back by popular request after her courses at Flute School London, international soloist Camilla Hoitenga returns for a workshop and master class on Saturday, 31 March 2012 10am-2pm at one of our favourite flute shops,

All Flutes Plus.

Performance Practice in the 20th/21st Centuries or "How to make old pieces sound brand new, and how to make brand new pieces sound convincing!"

A look at flute repertoire from Debussy to Saariaho, and from Varèse to Stockhausen and beyond....All pieces welcome. Performers are encouraged to bring not only repertoire they know but also a piece or two that is "brand new". Along the way we'll discuss techniques for deciphering scores, for using the breath in interpretation and for "dividing and conquering".

The globe-trotting flutist, known in particular for her recordings of the flute music of Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, has been on the front cover of all international Flute Magazines, and has premiered many flute concertos throughout the world, including Sariaaho's Flute Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic in the UK.

"charismatic and exciting playing…all flautists should hear Hoitenga play." (Pan magazine)

"Camilla's teaching is warm and friendly, but focussed and to the point." (A.M., student)

"I found Camilla very “user-friendly”, wonderful teacher." (K.S, student)

"Inspiring! She really helped me to develop my my own ideas as well as to clarify the composer's intention." (S.G., student)
