Q&A with Colin Lawson as part of master course 'Why Early Music?'

As part of his Master Elective called 'Why Early Music', teacher Wouter Verschuren has invited Prof. Colin Lawson to speak about the revival of Early Music and the connection to the classical music world during a Q&A session and discussion.

Mr. Lawson, who has been director of The Royal College of Music, London since 2005, is a celebrated British clarinetist on both modern and historical instruments. He has been a pioneer in the revival of the chalumeau and the historical clarinet. Besides his work as a performer and director of RCM, Mr. Lawson is a renowned scholar, who was one of the initiators of the series Cambridge Handbooks to the Historical Performance of Music. Mr. Lawson has an especially close association with Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto K622, which he has performed and directed numerous times on modern as well as historical clarinet.

Colin Lawson is a prime example of a musician who has found not only a way to combine the classical world with the Early Music (HIP) movement, but also to combine this with a career as a director of one of the world’s most renowned music schools and continuing activities as a scholar.
