Biography

Pamela Thorby is considered to be one of the most versatile and stylish recorder players on the international music scene. Her virtuosity and musicianship have been well documented by critics both here and abroad and her playing can be heard on numerous CDs, ranging from music of the medieval period to the present day and on many film and television scores.

Pamela’s ability to assimilate many styles of music and her skills as an improviser have led to performances and recordings with many eminent period chamber groups and orchestras, modern and jazz ensembles. She is principal recorder player for the English Concert. Pamela’s appearances on Karl Jenkins’ million-selling crossover ‘Adiemus’ albums make her the most listened to recorder player in the world.

She records as a solo artist for LINN Records. Baroque Recorder Concertos was a Gramophone Magazine ‘Critics Choice’ and Handel Sonatas was BBC Music Magazine ‘Chamber Music Disc of the Month’. The Independent described this recording as set to become a benchmark.
Pamela is the Principal Recorder Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
