Emma Murphy (Soprano, Recorder)

Born: England

The English soprano and recorder player, Emma Murphy, graduated from Birmingham University in 1994 before going on to Trinity College of Music to further her studies with a Masters degree. She was one of the youngest people ever to be awarded an FTCL at the age of just 19.

Emma Murphy is a versatile musician with a passion for exploring the wealth of material the history and range of her instrument offers. Her love of the recorder has led her to promote concerts, think up new projects, as well as commission new works. Her interest in novel ideas led to her researching and organising this disc of some of the best known recorder music, as well as some of the most neglected, from a collection that has never really fully been recorded before. Emma has also researched, written and presented features related to the recorder and early music on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Early Music Show’.

Emma Murphy performs music from the medieval period up to the present day, and has recently combined the two by arranging and recording one of Jimi Hendrix’s greatest hits, ‘Purple Haze’, on medieval instruments for the BBC. She has performed and recorded with the Gabrieli Consort, King's Consort and Ex Cathedra as well as with smaller chamber groups, in particular, with the trio Da Camera. Emma is a regular tutor at Dartington International Summer School.
