Emily Beynon

Emily Beynon is principal flute of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Amsterdam.

Born in Wales, she began her flute studies as a junior at the Royal College of Music with Margaret Ogonovsky and then went on to study with William Bennett at the Royal Academy and with Alain Marion in Paris. In 2002 she was made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music and is also a visiting professor there.

Equally at home in front of the orchestra as in its midst, Emily has performed as concerto soloist with, amongst others, The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, several BBC Orchestras, NHK Symphony, the Vienna, Prague, Netherlands and English Chamber Orchestras and the Academy of St.Martin-in-the-fields.
As a chamber musician she works regularly with her sister, the harpist, Catherine Beynon and the pianist Andrew West, and has made guest appearances with the Nash Ensemble, Skampa Quartet, Steven Isserlis, Dame Felicity Lott, Jean-Yves Tibaudet, the Kungsbacka Trio and Brodsky Quartet.

She is frequently heard on BBC radio and has featured in television documentaries for Thames, the BBC and AVRO (Netherlands)

Emily is an enthusiastic protagonist of new music and has had many new works written for her by some of the UK's leading composers: John Woolrich, Sally Beamish, Jonathan Dove, Errollyn Wallen and Roxanna Panufnik. In 2010 Universal Edition released a book of contemporary works entitled "Flute Project: new pieces for flute solo" on which she collaborated with Matthieu Dufour (Chicago Symphony), Kazushi Saito (Tokyo Philharmonic) and Emmanuel Pahud (Berlin Philharmonic).

A passionate and dedicated teacher, Emily is regularly invited to give masterclasses all over the world and has her own series of educational books for the Dutch publisher, De Haske. Together with business woman (and amateur flautist), Suzanne Wolff, Emily set up the Netherlands Flute Academy which launched in 2009; www.neflac.nl
