Following her successful collaborations with Richard Egarr and Andrew Lawrence-King, world-famous recorder player Pamela Thorby teams up with renowned lutenist Elizabeth Kenny for her fourth solo album on Linn, ‘The Nightingale and the Butterfly’, a sparkling exploration of French Baroque music.

‘The Nightingale and the Butterfly’ presents a fine example of Pamela Thorby’s award-winning trademark sound: soaring and graceful melodies played impeccably. Elizabeth Kenny weaves the lute melodies seamlessly amongst Pamela’s recorders – the two players complementing each other effortlessly.

Thorby and Kenny, both specialists in Baroque repertoire, give a unique interpretation of these appealing works whilst uncovering the beauty of some lesser-known gems.

Pamela Thorby has established herself as one of the world’s leading recorder players. She is most regularly heard on Karl Jenkins’ fabulous Adiemus recordings making her possibly one of the most listened to recorder players in the world.

Pamela was a founding member of the multi award-winning Palladian Ensemble, achieving international success with ten critically acclaimed albums.

"Pamela Thorby's sensual recorder playing, complete with improvised flourishes and infinitely flexible dynamic shadings, is out of the top drawer." - Music Week

"A wonderful artist at her very best: relaxed, stylish, unpredictable and distinctive of tone." - Independent on Sunday
