Philippa Davies

Guildhall School of Music & Drama


Philippa Davies has established an international reputation as one of the finest flautists currently performing. As a recitalist, she plays and broadcasts throughout the world at international festivals, whilst performing concertos and giving master classes from China to the USA. She has performed concertos with the New Stockholm Chamber Orchestra, the BBC Symphony, the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia and the London Mozart Players. Philippa’s current schedule includes many performances with the Nash Ensemble and London Winds and the Davies Cole Duo (with Maggie Cole). Since her much-admired performance of Mozart’s D major concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms in 1988 she has become a popular BBC Proms artist. Philippa’s numerous recordings include Mozart’s entire original concertos and quartets and Bach's Flute Sonatas with Maggie Cole. Future solo performances include the Wigmore Hall, as well as France, Switzerland, Spain and in Netherlands with her duo partner Jan Willem Nelleke. She regularly plays guest principal flute with many of the main London orchestras. Philippa is a Flute Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and has recently become an Andover Educator trained in Body Mapping which she is also involved with at the Guildhall. Each summer she runs her own highly regarded International Flute Course at Benslow, North London as well as a course in Cubertou, France.
