Martin Feinstein is one of the Britain’s leading interpreters of the masterpieces for flute. Following flute and recorder studies at the Royal College of Music, Martin won a German Government Scholarship to complete his training in Hamburg with the great German flautist Karlheinz Zoeller. While in Germany, Martin was able to develop his already keen interest in the study of Baroque performance on the modern flute. After working in Hamburg and Frankfurt with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and Ensemble Modern, he returned to London to form the Feinstein Ensemble and now works full-time with his group, touring, broadcasting and recording.
Robin Bigwood (pictured) is one of the UK’s busiest harpsichordists, performing regularly as a soloist and as a continuo player with Passacaglia and Feinstein Ensemble, and also with London Baroque, The Sixteen, King’s Consort, Florilegium and Britten Sinfonia. He has also played with Parley of Instruments, European Union Chamber Orchestra, Musicians of the Globe and London Mozart Players.
