|The Lynn Trio|
The Lynn Trio's first collaboration was in 2000 when bassoonist Martin Gatt, oboist Jane Finch and pianist Margaret Lynn joined forces for a recording of music by Madeleine Dring. However, their musicmaking friendship actually stretches back many years before - Margaret Lynn has performed with Martin Gatt since 1984 in recitals, radio broadcasts and recordings, and both have been playing with Jane Finch for the last ten years in various chamber music groups.
Margaret Lynn's penchant for wind chamber music has led to performances with artists such as Peter Lloyd, John McCaw and the late Anthony Camden. She was Associate Dean of Music at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts for many years and currently serves there as Academic Consultant.
Jane Finch has worked as a freelance oboist with the BBC Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, and the Northern Sinfonia. As a soloist and chamber musician she has performed extensively throughout the UK and has broadcast for BBC Radio.
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.
