Date: Friday 1st December 2017
Rosanna Ter-Berg, flute
Leo Nicholson, piano
Rosanna graduated in 2011 from Trinity Laban, with Distinction in her Masters in Performance degree, studying with Anna Noakes.
Prior to Trinity, Rosanna was at the University of Leeds, learning with Linda Verrier at the Royal Northern College of Music. She graduated with a 1st Class BMus degree. The third year of her degree was spent studying at the Strasbourg Conservatoire, one of France’s principal music colleges.
Born in London, Leo grew up in Staffordshire and Sheffield. He studied at the Purcell School of Music with Ilana Davids, and at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music with Jonathan Middleton, where he won the Ida Carroll Prize for Merit.
An accomplished chamber musician, Leo is a much sought-after accompanist. He accompanied Rosanna in her Isabelle Bond Gold Medal performance at St John’s, Smith Square.
“Rosanna Ter-Berg and Leo Nicholson made a first-rate flute and piano duo, who shone in everything they touched, from sultry Jolivet to neo-romantic David Matthews. The highlight of their contributions was Edwin Roxburgh’s Flute Music with an Accompaniment for Flute and Piano (1986), where the skilfully crafted give-and-take of the parts was rewarded with some razor-sharp playing. Ter-Berg also added a solo piccolo encore in Patrick Nunn’s Sprite – short, witty, inventive.” ; The Financial Times
“…the spotlight fell on some outstanding young players: flautist Rosanna Ter-Berg, pianist Leo Nicholson… First Ter-Berg and Nicholson zapped us with Jolivet’s ‘Chant de Linos’, a test-piece for flute examinations with dizzy virtuosic requirements. They followed this with Edwin Roxburgh’s oddly-named ‘Flute Music with an Accompaniment for Flute and Piano’ and David Matthews’s ‘Duet Variations’: in the former Ter-Berg extracted shakuhachi-style harmonics from her instrument, and in the latter she drew out the tensile strength in the musical lines; ending with Patrick Nunn’s three-minute piccolo solo ‘Sprite’, she made a theatrical exit.” **** The Independent
