About the artist
Described by The Times as “a glorious individual player” and a player of “intelligence and distinction”, Anthony Robb is currently principal flute of the Oxford Philharmonic.
After his studies at the Guildhall School of Music in London Anthony was appointed principal flute with the BBC Radio Orchestra. This led to invitations to play as guest principal with the London Symphony, Philharmonia, and Academy of St Martins in the Fields.
As well as his position with the Oxford Philharmonic Anthony regularly appears as guest principal of the City Of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National and many other orchestras.
As a concerto soloist he has appeared with the Halle, BBC Concert Orchestra, City of London Chamber Orchestra, and Oxford Philharmonic.
Recent recordings include discs of chamber music by Jean Francaix, chamber music by English and French female composers where his playing was singled out by the Gramaphone magazine in 2017 as being “highly impressive”, and most recently a disc of music for flute, oboe and piano.
Anthony is firmly committed to outreach and educational work. He leads projects for Wigmore Hall’s “Music for Life” working with people living with dementia, and trains students at the Royal Academy in working with children in hospitals.
Anthony lives in leafy Letchworth Garden City in Hertfordshire with his wife, Louise, three grown up children, and three dogs.
Anthony will be forwarding donations received to the Wigmore Hall "Music For Life" project and The Oxford Philharmonic's "Music In Hospitals" scheme.
