Marcusson burst onto the American flute scene in 1987, when he won First Prize in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition. In 1992 he earned his soloist diploma from the Music Conservatory of Gothenburg. That same year he won a prize at the Vienna Music Competition. Sir James Galway awarded Göran a handmade flute of Waterford Crystal for his outstanding performance in the Galway Masterclass, which was followed by a duet on television.
Marcusson has been guest principal flute with the London Symphony Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Cadaques, and Gothenburg Opera Orchestra. Currently he is Principal Flute with the Gothenburg Wind Orchestra and also maintains a busy international schedule as a soloist, performing in the USA, South America, Asia, and throughout Europe. For the past 17 years, he has been a resident artist performing annually at our Newport Music Festival in July.
Known around the globe as “The Flautist’s Pianist,” Tim Carey is also a critically acclaimed solo performer, chamber-music player, orchestral keyboard player and teacher.
His early studies were with Harold Parker, Louis Kentner, then, at the Royal College of Music, London, with Kendall Taylor, David Parkhouse, and Bernard Roberts. He spends his time partnering with many different instrumentalists, especially flutists, in a variety of chamber-music combinations, as well as giving the occasional solo recital or concerto performance. He is the regular pianist for many flute festivals and conventions around the world. Last year included six trips to the United States, as well as China, Brazil, Costa Rica, Sweden, Slovenia and elsewhere, all working with flutists.
As an orchestral keyboard player, he has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Orchestras, the Philharmonia, Ulster Orchestra, Scottish Opera and currently with the BBC Concert Orchestra. He is also much in demand as a teacher in his home county of Essex.
