Philip’s appearances for the coming months have now been added to his diary, which include performances at Glyndebourne and the BBC Proms. More information about specific events, tours and projects will be posted soon.
Philip will be playing baroque bassoon with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in Handel’s Rinaldo as part of the Glyndebourne Festival this year. This opera features a technically impressive bassoon obbligato, which you can hear Philip performing here on YouTube (originally taken from David Daniels’ album of Handel Arias).
Performances will run from 2 July - 22 August 2011.
