Adam Walker in profile

He sings with his flute” is how pianist James Baillieu sums up Adam Walker. In this film he modestly talks about his journey from innately talented nine-year-old at Chetham’s School of Music to principal flute at London Symphony Orchestra at the age of 21. His BBT award has enabled him to record his first recital CD – Vocalise on the Opus Arte label with pianist Baillieu, released April 2013 – and also commission a new flute concerto from the much admired composer Huw Watkins, to be premiered with co-commissioner LSO, conducted by Daniel Harding, on 23 February 2014.
