Denis Bouriakov: Flute Masterclass (New time: 1:30 pm)

Principal Flute of the Metropolitan Opera, Denis Bouriakov has won prizes in many international competitions including Jean-Pierre Rampal, Munich ARD, Prague Spring, Carl Nielsen, and Kobe competitions. In addition to his virtuoso technique, he is continually transcribing and performing violin concertos and sonatas, expanding the limits of flute technique and artistry. Bouriakov has performed worldwide as a soloist with many orchestras, including the Moscow Philharmonic, the Prague Chamber Orchestra, the Ensemble of Tokyo, the Odense Symphony, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Ensemble of Paris, and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Bouriakov is very active as a soloist, orchestra player, and teacher; his recent engagements have included recitals and masterclasses in Europe, Asia, the U.S., and Australia.
Mr. Bouriakov was born in Crimea. At the age of ten, he was given a place at the Moscow Central Special Music School, where he studied with Professor Y.N. Dolzhikov. He later toured as soloist to over 20 countries in Europe, Asia, South America, and the U.S. He went on to attend the Royal Academy of Music in London, studying with Professor William Bennett (OBE). His graduation in 2001 was accompanied by the Principal’s Award for Outstanding Recital, and the Teaching Fellowship Award for the following year. In 2006, the Academy awarded him the title of ARAM (Associate of the Royal Academy of Music).
While in London, Bouriakov freelanced as principal flute with the Philharmonia of London, the LPO, Leeds Opera North, and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony. Bouriakov’s first position was Principal Flute with the Tampere Philharmonic in Finland, where he also taught at the Tampere Conservatory of Music for three years. In 2008, he was appointed Principal Flute with the Barcelona Symphony under Eiji Oue. Later that year, he won the Principal Flute position with the Metropolitan Opera in New York. | With sincere gratitude to West Valley Music and Altus Flutes for their support of this event.
