“Fine works demonstrating even better playing by the Ensemble Diderot. Both fiddles play with persuasive mastery, but the finest moments arrive with the ravishing transverse flute playing of Kristen Huebner.”
As special guest of the Paris-based Ensemble Diderot, I’ve had the pleasure of recording two Mondonville Sonatas, No. 3 & 5, performing the Opera ‘Falstaff’ and playing Blavet Concerto frequently in concert in Sudtirol, Italy, Germany and France.
Our next upcoming adventure continues with a program of Bach’s Musical offering, Blavet’s Flute Concerto and Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach’s outlandish trio sonata in G, among others! Come join us at the Bach Biennale Weimar this summer on 14 or 15 July!
The Primary Sources is a pre-classical chamber music duo specializing in works from the late 18th to early 19th centuries. Forming the basis are Kristen Huebner and Lucie de Saint Vincent on fortepiano, with special guests Zdenka Prochazkova (baroque viola) and Gerda Marijs (baroque cello).
Our most recent trio program, together with cellist Gerda Marijs, explores the connection between ex-pat composers from ‘the continent’ (Johann Christian Bach, Carl Friedrich Abel, Muzio Clementi, a young Mozart on tour and Haydn to name a few) and their new-found artistic home in London during the 1760s. Come check it out on 1 September in Deventer!
Clavilicious is a duo I share together with Greek clavichordist Alex Mastichiadis. We dig deep into the trenches of the late 18th-century repertoire for flute and keyboard to bring you one of the most intimate sound experiences possible in our repertoire. The unique quality of the clavichord will draw your ears down another decible, while the flute hovers on top, inviting the listener to explore the colors so richly blended by the two.
I’m passionate about teaching the flute and exploring genres both close to my heart and stretching outside my comfort zone. If you’re an absolute beginner or have the itch to take the instrument back up again after a few years, there’s always a good time to begin! My lessons are catered to your musical interests, level and availability.
