Anthony Robb

Flautist

BIO

Described as an “outstanding individual player” by The Times, Anthony Robb is one of the most versatile flautists of his generation

Appointed principal flute in the BBC Radio Orchestra at the age of 23 Anthony Robb’s career has ranged from playing principal flute in all of Londons’ Symphony and Chamber orchestras, to concerto performances with The Halle, BBC Concert Orchestra, Sinfonia 21, London Virtuosi, and the Oxford Philharmonic. He has performed concertos by Mozart, Bach, Telemann, Malcolm Arnold, Howard Blake, and gave the world premiere (on modern instruments) of Vivaldi’s recently discovered flute concerto “Il Grand Mogul”.

As a chamber musician Anthony has worked with London Winds, Oxford Philharmonic Soloists, The St Magnus Trio, Albion Ensemble, and the London Symphony Chamber Ensemble. Recordings include two CDs of works by female composers with the Ambache Chamber Ensemble (regularly played on BBC Radio 3), Wind and Piano music by Jean Francaix, and music for flute, oboe and piano.

“there was playing of intelligence and distinction from flautist Anthony Robb”

(Cadogan Hall concert review Oxford Philharmonic November 2015)

The Times

Commercial and Outreach Work are an integral part of Anthony Robb’s career.

A regular performer in the studio, Anthony can be heard on many film and television soundtracks featuring the compositions of Elmer Bernstein, Alan Silvestri, Nigel Hess, Bruce Broughton, Angela Morley and Ronnie Hazlehurst, as well as advertising jingles.

Firmly committed to the outreach work, he has taken music to schools, hospitals, and is particularly involved with the Wigmore Hall’s “Music For Life” project, an organization that works with people living with dementia.

“(Mel Bonis) ‘Scenes de la Foret’ is really a work for flute and two accompanists rather than a unified trio, and Anthony Robb shines in it, as indeed he also does in Tailleferre’s Concertino” (CD review May 2016)
