Annabel Knight studied recorder and flute at the Royal College of Music in London, graduating in 1993. A founding member of the renowned baroque ensemble Passacaglia, she has performed for nearly twenty years as both recorder and baroque flautist in concerts, broadcasts and festivals across Europe and America. These include numerous BBC radio broadcasts as well as recitals at major London venues including the Wigmore Hall and South Bank. With the group she has made several highly acclaimed recordings, including music by the French baroque composer Louis-Antoine Dornel for Naxos, featuring guest artist Dan Laurin. Her interest in contemporary music has led to her commissioning a number of new works by British composers both for solo recorder and for the quintet Fontanella, of which she is a member. She is passionate about working with young musicians and is the director of the popular Woodhouse Recorder Week summer school for aspiring players. She teaches recorder at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
