Cor Anglais player Alison Teale will appear on BBC 4’s Woman’s Hour on the 15th of November at 10 am to speak about, and perform pieces from her new album Cor!,
Alison, Principal Cor Anglais player with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Oboe Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, began her solo career to raise awareness of the instrument to listeners and composers alike, with the hope of more people becoming aware of the beauty and versatility of this, often, overlooked instrument. It was this passion and conviction for expanding its repertoire that has placed her amongst other prominent women in the arts who have appeared on the show, such as Judi Dench and Jazz singers Dee Dee Bridgewater and Clare Teal.
The official launch of her CD will be at The Forge in Camden on the 11th of December. For tickets visit The Forge.
Apart from launching her first solo project, Alison continues her engagements with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
