COURTNEY
WESTCOTT
flute
Courtney Westcott has performed as a regular soloist or principal flute with
Seattle Baroque, NYS Baroque (Ithaca), and Tafelmusik (Toronto). She has
recorded for CBC, NPR, and the Wildboar, Loft, ATMA, and Focus labels.
The CD  
J. C. Bach Sonatas, on Loft Recordings, was praised by
Gramophone for the “joy in these performances.” A founding member of the
chamber ensemble Zephyrus, she has been described as a  “consummate
flute player ... technically flawless” and her playing as “a conversation with
each phrase and detail shaped” (
Seattle Post-Intelligencer). In 1980, she was
the first woman and second person to receive a Soloist Diploma on the
Baroque Flute from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where she studied
with Barthold Kuijken and Frans Vester. With flutemaker Peter Noy she
collaborates on the research and development of flutes based on eighteenth-
and nineteenth-century originals.
