|Martin Gatt and Margaret Lynn|
Martin Gatt has been principal bassoonist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the London Sinfonietta, and the London Symphony Orchestra, and has performed and recorded as soloist and chamber musician all over the world. He is a Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and also of the Royal College of Music in London where he is Professor of Bassoon.
Margaret Lynn enjoys a wide-ranging musical career as performer, lecturer, music educator, radio broadcaster and music editor. She has appeared in international festivals both as soloist and as chamber ensemble player, and her penchant for wind chamber music has led to performances with artists such as the late Anthony Camden, Peter Lloyd and John McCaw. She was Associate Dean of Music at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts for many years and currently serves as Academic Consultant.
Martin and Margaret have performed together since 1984. They met in Hong Kong when Martin took a sabbatical from the London Symphony Orchestra to assume the position of Head of Wind at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, and there they covered much of the repertoire for bassoon and piano in recitals, radio broadcasts and recordings.
Following Martins return to the UK they have recorded an album of arrangements of the music of Brahms and Schumann, an album of collected chamber works by the English composer Madeleine Dring and an album of wind trios by Poulenc, Françaix and Damase.

I normally leave my office at 15:30 (GMT) to catch the last post which is also earlier than normal due to Covid changes by Royal Mail.
