Mascarade is

David Parsons – Baroque Lute and Theorbo 
Nikki Wilkinson – Baroque Flute

Nikki Wilkinson started studying the flute, aged 13, in Bristol with Carole Jenner-Timms and later with Averil Williams in London. After completing a performer’s diploma in modern flute, she became interested in and was captivated by historical flute performance and has studied the baroque flute with Philippe Allain-Dupré, Wilbert Hazelzet and Masterclasses with Rachel Brown. She particularly enjoys performing with Duos and chamber ensembles and now specialises in the Baroque Flute
Her boxwood flute is made by Philippe Allain-Dupré, Paris, in 2009 (A 415) based on Denner (outside) and Stanesby (inside) and a grenadilla copy of the Hotteterre ‘Berlin’ flute (A 392) made by Giovanni Tardino, Basel in 2013. 

David Parsons studied at the Royal College of Music as a pupil of Diana Poulton. Following a successful Wigmore Hall debut he has toured widely in Europe, Scandanavia and the USA. He has broadcast in London, Los Angeles, Oslo, and Munich and presented a recital of Lute music for Spanish Television.
His recent CD releases have included Elizabethan Lute Music, 18th century ‘galant’ chamber music with his trio, The Haydn Lute Trio and the music of the 19th guitar virtuoso Fernando Sor together with the soprano Evelyn Tubb.
