Robin Walker


Organista e Maestro del coro, La Badia Fiorentina


Robin was born in England and was a prize-winning Organ student at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he was awarded the Diploma, the Academy’s Premier Prix. 


Robin lives in Florence, where he is Organist of La Badia Fiorentina (Florence Abbey), playing the 1558 Zefferini organ.  Prior to his appointment at La Badia he was Director of Music of St Mark’s Anglican Church in Florence.  


He directs the Cantate Choir, in Kent, England, and their sister period instrument orchestra; Vivace!, which he has recently directed in Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, Bach’s St John Passion, Mozart’s Requiem and Handel’s Judas Maccabeus.


As an organ recitalist Robin has performed in the UK, USA, and across Europe, including Helsinki Cathedral, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey in London, and Bergen Cathedral (Norway). 


Robin has released two acclaimed commercial recordings:  The works of John Ellis (Vol 2) on Divine Art and ‘Byrd to Blow – the English Baroque Organ’ on Herald. 


Robin was the musical director and harpsichordist for last year’s Festival’s  innaugral production of “San Giovanni Battista” - the rarely-performed 1675 oratorio by Alessandro Stradella.


This will be Robin’s last concert in Florence before moving to England to take up a new position at St George’s Hanover Square in London.

La scoperta del canto espressivo, la nuova monodia accompagnata, la nascita del basso continuo, l'inizio dello strumentalismo virtuoso: questi straordinarî fenomeni concomitanti e interconnessi delineano la nuova musica che si affaccia all'alba del Seicento. Una musica toccante, espressiva e finalmente capace di veicolare i più sfumati affetti dell'animo umano, dal furore alla melancolia, dalla dolcezza alla disperazione. Un percorso emozionale attraverso i compositori che fecero grande questa nuova musica: dai più celebri Caccini e Frescobaldi ai meno noti Cima e Kapsberger, in un itinerario che alterna la vocalità espressiva di madrigali e canzoni al nuovo e agguerrito strumentalismo per flauto, viola, tiorba.

The recital will show firstly the music of Florence: composers from Florence and those with close associations, and the Balletto - a work on a Florentine theme which is the nearest thing we have to something by Peri for organ.


(Jacopo Peri played the Zefferini organ at the Badia shortly after its construction. He then went on to become the composer of what are regarded as the the first operas Dafne & Euridice)

 

Then in the second half we shall see the influence of the Italian composers on the rest of Europe, with stylistic links and links through Italian teachers or study trips.
