Former Musical Director of the Bloomsbury Woodwind Ensemble, Shea Lolin, is due to record an album of woodwind orchestra music in March 2023 with the woodwind section of the Czech Philharmonic in their residence, the Dvorák Hall. The repertoire to be recorded has been curated from Shea’s tenure with BWE (2005–2021), which includes four commissions which the group gave the premiere performances of. A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to raise funds alongside other grant applications. BASBWE has been publicly acknowledged for their financial support.
One of the UK’s most influential wind advocates, Dr Timothy Reynish MBE, has offered his support to the campaign, describing it as “one of the most exciting projects on at present”. One of the composers whose work will be recorded, Judith Bingham OBE said “This recording is really great news. It will be a real treat to have such first-rate professionals playing, that happens so rarely with windband music.”
