Laurence Perkins (bassoon)

Laurence Perkins has spent a lifetime promoting the bassoon, helping the instrument and its solo repertoire to be better known. His solo concerts have included recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room in London with pianist Michael Hancock, concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra at St John’s Smith Square, and performances on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. His solo recordings for Hyperion include a top recommendation on Radio 3’s ‘Record Review’ (Mozart’s concerto) and No 4 in the UK Official Specialist Classical Charts (Richard Strauss’s Duet-Concertino). Laurence has led numerous national and international bassoon projects, and he is regularly involved in education work with children, students, young professionals and adult amateur players. He was the teacher of bassoonists Catriona McDermid and Matthew Kitteringham.
