Sharon Williams"I first discovered Lillian's piccolos 17 years ago when I was in my first job in the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and have been playing them ever since. I simply won't play anything else. It's necessary in the London Symphony Orchestra for me to cover a range of different types of work from top quality classical concerts to studio work for major artists and films -- the Burkart piccolo suits the job perfectly. I love the full bodied rich sound you can produce on them and the lightning articulation in the loud passages when I'm competing with my brass colleagues! Yet they retain a beautiful round sound even in the most pianissimo of phrases. I love my piccolo. Actually all three of them! What more can I say other than buy one!"

Sharon Williams is the Principal Piccolo of the London Symphony Orchestra one of the world's leading orchestras where she has been for the past 9 years. Prior to that she was Principal Piccolo in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic. She regularly works with most of Britain's major orchestras and freelances on film sessions and other commercial work.

She is also currently Professor of piccolo at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama and regularly gives masterclasses.

Judy Braude
Burkart 5-95 Platinum-Enhanced Silver Flute with Platinum Headjoint and Burkart Elite Piccolo, USA
[+ read more]

Judy Braude"The first time I heard a Burkart 5-95 flute I knew that this was the flute and the sound that I had been searching for for years. It had a stunning dark tonal core with a ring to it like no other flute I had ever come across. I simply loved it and had to have one. I love that its tone is clear and focused. My 5-95 Elite flute always projects in any setting that I perform with it in: whether it is in an orchestra, in a chamber music setting or in solo work. Both of my head joints, the 595 and the Full Platinum, are exceptionally responsive and give me an enormous dynamic range with all of the demanded musical expressiveness. I love that I can actually feel the resonance in the tube. (It vibrates when I play!)
Until now I had never found an instrument which had both a reliable and well built mechanism and a great sound�. but my Burkart 5-95 does. Its mechanism is as tight and as fast as I could ever hope for in an instrument. It also has been absolutely reliable--a feature which is very important to me since I use my flute for so many hours every day for practicing, teaching, and performing."
"My Burkart piccolo?…well… it can be described as simply “world class”…and awesome, awesome, awesome! Everyone who tries it is just astounded by it."

Flutist Judy Braude appears frequently as a concerto artist with many Boston area groups and has premiered several concerti written exclusively for her. She also appears regularly as a recitalist up and down the East Coast. In addition, she can now be heard as a recording artist on her own recently released solo cd entitled “The Twelve G.F. Handel Flute Sonatas”.

Previous to expanding her recent foray into solo flute artistry, Judy was for many years a busy orchestral freelancer in the New York, Philadelphia, and Boston areas performing in such venues as Carnegie Hall and on national TV and radio with orchestras such as the New Jersey State Opera Orchestra, the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, and for almost twenty years as the solo Principal Flutist with the Merrimack Valley Philharmonic Orchestra.

Additionally, Ms. Braude has been also active as a flute teacher, having served on the flute faculty of the Boston Conservatory in their Special Programs Division for over a decade and several other college faculties. Recently she became a certified Suzuki flute teacher and she now currently maintains a busy private studio in addition to serving as a flute teacher for several Boston area community music schools.  Judy is also the Founder/Director of the “White Mountain Flute Conservatory”, a summer flute camp for gifted Junior and Senior High School flutists.

Judy received her BS degree in Music Education as flute major with David Berman  at Ithaca College and her MM Degree in Flute Performance with Charlie Delaney at the University of Illinois. Additional flute teachers have included Stephen Preston, Goran Marcusson in Master Classes and  Julius Baker, Maurice Sharp, Murray Panitz and Shaul Ben-Meir privately. Judy also had the wonderful opportunity to play for and study with the legendary Marcel Moyse in his Master Classes in Brattleboro, Vermont when she was a young undergraduate student many years ago.
