Andrews Massey Duo (flute & guitar) @ SNGF 2018
Emily Andrews (flutes, voice) and David Massey (guitars) met in 2009 at the Royal Academy of Music while playing in the orchestra for a musical. They have played together ever since, alongside their solo careers. Emily and David are expanding the boundaries of flute and guitar duo playing. Their extremely varied recitals mix classics of the flute and guitar repertoire with their own arrangements of songs and instrumental classical and folk music.
As a duo they have gone from strength to strength: winners of a prestigious Tunnell Trust Award for 2012-2013; semi-finalists in the Royal Overseas League Competition in London three times; and regular recitalists in a variety of settings, including lunchtime and evening recitals around the country (previous venues include Wigmore Hall, St Martin in the Fields, Kings Place, St James Piccadilly and Chipping Campden Music Festival) and abroad in Germany, Italy and Sweden.
As recording artists they have released three CDs so far: from the roots, a collection of their own arrangements of Brisith folk melodies; make merry, the duos own arrangements of traditional Christmas carols in world music styles; and Stolen Serenades, a CD of Schubert and Mozart arranged for flute and guitar.
