London snares star flutemain
The Royal Academy of Music has engaged Denis Bouriakov as Visiting Professor in flute.
Denis is principal of the Los Angeles Philharmonic – he will have a long commute – and one of the most expressive soloists around.
He says: ‘Very honoured to be back at the Academy. As an alumus myself, I treasure the school and it’s very dear to me. I was very fortunate to study with William Bennett OBE for 4 years at the Academy, and those were amazing years! Coming from Russia, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the RAM’s generous support.’
