Juliette Bausor - flute

Widely recognised as one of Britain’s leading flute players, Juliette Bausor began her studies with Anna Pope at the junior department of the Royal Academy of Music and Purcell School of Music, before going on to study with Philippa Davies, Paul Edmund Davies and Samuel Coles at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She continued her tuition at the Conservatoire Nationale Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris, with Sophie Cherrier and Vincent Lucas.

Following international success in competitions, including early recognition in reaching the televised Concerto Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and winning the Gold Medal in both the Shell LSO Competition and the Royal Over-Seas League Competition, Juliette has appeared as a concerto soloist with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Academy of St Martins in the Fields, European Union Chamber Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia and London Mozart Players, with conductors including Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Thomas Zehetmair, Mario Venzago and Sir Neville Marriner. Success on an international scale is reflected in tours around Europe and beyond, to Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand.

In 2014 Juliette Bausor was selected by the European Concert Hall Organisation as an ECHO Rising Star.  Juliette has since been invited to perform as a soloist in some of Europe’s most prestigious concert venues, including Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Bozar in Brussels, Town Hall Birmingham, Palace of Arts in Budapest, Vienna Musikverein, Stockholm Konserthus, L’Auditori in Barcelona, Konzerthaus Dortmund, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Sage Gateshead and the Barbican Centre in London.

Also highly regarded as a chamber musician, Juliette is a member of the celebrated chamber group Ensemble 360, resident at the Crucible in Sheffield. In addition to the Ensemble’s busy concert schedule, Juliette is regularly invited to give recitals at major venues and festivals throughout the UK, including frequent Wigmore Hall and South Bank appearances, and performances at the Edinburgh, Cheltenham and Aldeburgh International Festivals and BBC Proms. Juliette has collaborated with many other leading chamber musicians, including Thomas Zehetmair (violin), Alasdair Beatson and Llyr Williams (piano), Kate Royal (soprano), Anneleen Lenaerts and Catrin Finch (harp), as well as the Coull, Elias, Badke, Carducci and Edinburgh String Quartets amongst others. Recent chamber recital highlights include a concert with the wind principals of Royal Northern Sinfonia and Christian Blackshaw (piano) as part of the BBC Proms 2015, as well as performances at the Presteigne Festival, with Sally Pryce (harp), and at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival alongside Katharine Dain (soprano), Lise Berthaud (viola) and Cliona Doris (harp).

Juliette is principal flute with both the London Philharmonic Orchestra and London Mozart Players, and frequently appears as guest principal flute with orchestras all over Britain, notably with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and Britten Sinfonia.

Daniel Bates - oboe

Daniel Bates (MA CANTAB, FRSM, FTCL, ARAM, AGSMD) is principal oboe with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the City of London Sinfonia and holds the oboe chair at Miss Saigon- the Cameron Mackintosh production at the Prince Edward Theatre in the West End. He has also held the principal oboe position with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at the Sage, Gateshead. He has played guest principal for all the major UK orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the John Wilson Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra,  and the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields as well as various international orchestras such as the National Orchestra of Colombia and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. As a session musician he has recorded for various pop acts and films, including the Harry Potter franchise and for Barbra Streisand, Mary J Blige, Rihanna and Stevie Wonder. He has also played principal oboe with the Gabrieli Consort and Players and, on classical and romantic oboe, as principal with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, under the conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Roger Norrington and Sir Mark Elder. He has recorded a CD, with the working title ‘Heatwave’, with the flautist Juliette Bausor and the pianist Simon Lepper (both fellow winners of the Royal Overseas Competition) – soon to be released.

Born in London, Daniel was offered music scholarships to every music college in the country but chose to study at the Royal Academy of Music. He was then also awarded a music scholarship to study at Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he read Music and the History of Art.

When he was eighteen years of age he became the youngest ever winner of the Royal Overseas League Competition. This competition is one of the most prestigious in the world (it launched the careers of Jacqueline du Pre and John Lill, amongst others) and is open to all commonwealth musicians of age 30 and under. A few years later he also won two major international competitions, in Italy and Romania.

He has performed solo concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra, the City of London Sinfonia, the Irish Chamber Orchestra, the Brasov Filharmoica, the Turin Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Mozart Players and the English Chamber Orchestra. Extensive solo recitals include venues such as the Wigmore Hall (on numerous occasions but perhaps most notably giving the premiere of a new work by Louis Andriessen), the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Usher Hall and the Purcell Room. Internationally, he has given solo recitals in venues such as the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and at various European festivals.

As an actor (having studied classical acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA)) his credits include the title role in The Picture of Dorian Gray (Vienna’s English Theatre) Fedotik in The Three Sisters (alongside Kristen Scott Thomas and Eric Sykes in the West End) and Adrian Green in Casualty (BBC TV).

Future plans include concertos with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the City of London Sinfonia solo recitals in the UK and France and an invitation to perform at the Prussia Cove Music Festival.

He has run the London Marathon twice, in aid of Barnado’s, and has a cat called Pushkin.
