Martin Feinstein and Pawel Siwczak will be joining CollectIvists in a fab programme of Bach and beyond...

Martin Feinstein played jazz piano from a young age and started playing the flute at the age of 15, inspired by hearing the works of J.S.Bach. Three years later he began flute and recorder studies at the Royal College of Music and there won a German Government Scholarship which enabled him to continue his training in Hamburg with the great German flautist Karlheinz Zoeller.

He is recognised as one of the UK's leading period flute players. As a soloist and with his Feinstein Ensemble, he has performed, broadcast and recorded a wide range of repertoire on both modern and period instruments. In 2007 he was invited by BBC Television to introduce, direct and perform a groundbreaking broadcast of all six Brandenburg Concerti . His sonata and concerto recordings for Naxos, Black Box Music, Sanctuary Records, Dutton Epoch, Barn Cottage Records and BBC Television have met with critical praise both in the UK and abroad. Fanfare (USA) said that “Feinstein’s flute-playing is beyond praise - I have never heard better.” Gramophone described Feinstein as “A graceful player and decisive conductor.” They noted that “Feinstein has acquired a formidable command of Bach’s very particular style..these are virtuoso flute concertos played with great authenticity and consummate musicianship.”

Apart from performing in all of London’s major venues, Martin Feinstein has toured in the Far East, Germany, the Gulf and Egypt, Israel, Belgium and Holland. His love of Bach's music continues to inspire his work.

Pawel Siwczak is a Polish and British musician based in London. He has a passion for historical keyboards, especially harpsichord and fortepiano, which he studied extensively. He is the winner of the 8th Broadwood Harpsichord Competition and the Musica Britannica prize.He is a teacher at the Royal Academy of Music and a director of Bach Club.

Pawel’s performance are diverse, ranging form solo recitals to conducting from the keyboard, and collaborations with orchestras and ensembles. He thrives working with other art disciplines: his project with a PC Music artist, Danny Harle, was featured by BBC Radio among “Five of the BBC’s weirdest live session ever”; a concise summary of Pawel’s experimental spirit combined with traditional classical training!
