Alena Walentin (formerly Lugovkina) is an Altus Artist, an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music and Vice-Chair of the British Flute Society. Alena is a recipient of numerous prizes such as the first prizes in the British Flute Society’s competitions, International Flute Competition “Friedrich Kuhlau” in Germany, and the Royal Academy of Music flute competition. She has also won several prestigious awards including the Worshipful Company of Musicians Award, the Hattori Foundation Award and the Wolfson Foundation Award, and performed at the most prestigious UK venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, King’s Place, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. This is her debut album.

Joseph Havlat was born in Hobart, Australia, and studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London under Prof. Joanna MacGregor from 2012-18, where he received his BMus and MMus with distinction, including awards for exceptional merit in studentship and the highest recital mark for a postgraduate pianist. Joseph has performed in major concert venues around the UK and in Europe, America, Japan and Australia as a soloist and as part of chamber groups and orchestras.

“Alena is a wonderfully accomplished player with the most beautiful round and expressive sound showing a huge range of colours, moods and dynamics with evident ease. She has excellent technique which never lets you for a moment think she might find anything difficult! ... her seamless legato with that lovely liquid golden, round sound always taking one through her musical phrasing.” - British Flute Society
