Ingrid Pearson, BMus (Hons), PhD, DipEd, LTCL, LMusA
Ingrid Pearson has performed with major UK period ensembles including Florilegium, Gabrieli Consort and Players, The Hanover Band, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. She has appeared in venues including London's Queen Elizabeth, Barbican and Wigmore halls, the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Lincoln Center, New York. Ingrid's collection of instruments include Classical clarinets after Tauber (from Daniel Bangham's Cambridge workshop), as well as a soprano chalumeau after Denner and a Classical basset horn after Griesbacher (both by Andreas Schöni of Bern). Ingrid also continues to perform on modern clarinet. Recent projects include new compositions in 19-tone equally-tempered microtonality, concerts with the Edinburgh Quartet and a performance at the International Clarinet Association’s recent symposium in Madrid.
Her interest in clarinet history, repertoire and development brought Ingrid to the UK from Australia. Since completing doctoral study she has been active as an academic, joining the professoriat at London's Royal College of Music in 2005. Ingrid is currently RCM Research Fellow in Performance Practice, which allows her a broad remit of activities across theory and practice. Her research has been supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Galpin Society, and her publications have appeared in English, Chinese and German.
