The Paul Edmund-Davies Performing Edition
Besetzung: Flöte, Basso continuo
Paul Edmund-Davies established his international reputation as flautist and soloist in the twenty years that he was Principal Flute of the London Symphony Orchestra. Conductors with whom he has performed concerti include Leonard Bernstein, Rostropovich, Pierre Boulez and Kent Nagano, and he has played in Chamber Music ensembles with Andre Previn.
As well as performing as a soloist with the LSO and the ECO, he has also appeared as guest Principal with many London orchestras and has recorded regularly, as both an orchestral player and a soloist with the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields.
For the last seven years Paul has toured extensively, giving recitals, concerti and classes in America, Europe, Canada, Australasia, the Middle East and the Far East.
In 1993, with two other LSO Principals, Roy Carter and John Alley, Paul formed The Deutz Trio in association with Champagne Deutz. Their first CD was released in April 1995 and to date they have recorded a total of four discs. As a result of the association with this prestigious Champagne House, Paul now gives tasting/recitals in which he talks about the history and development of Champagne with musical reference.
Paul has also co-written and performed on a cross-over project with Neil Percy, Principal Percussionist with the LSO. Their disc, Ball and Biscuit, was released in 1999 on the Black Box label.
After 16 years as Professor of Flute at the Guildhall School of Music, Paul took up a similar position at the Royal College of Music. He has also edited several books of music entitled The Flautist's Collection and has completed editing and recording the complete Flute Sonatas of G F Handel (consisting of score, parts and CD with complete performance and play-along version), the Telemann Fantasias, the two unaccompanied Partitas by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach and the Canonic Sonatas and Sonatas for two flutes by Telemann.
He is currently working on editions of the complete flute works of the hitherto uncelebrated Guiseppe Rabboni. Principal Flute of La Scala Milan between 1826 and 1856, he was a composer, renowned teacher and a flute virtuoso. The 24 Studies of Rabboni were published by Kevin Mayhew Publishers in the Autumn of 2002 and the first twelve Sonatas in the summer of 2003.
