Celebrating the Past: Treasures from the RCM Collections

Dr Ingrid Pearson

Founded in 1882, the Royal College of Music holds research collections of international significance, early printed music, manuscripts and more modern repertoire and literature. Dr Pearson uses some of the rich holdings of the RCM to shed light on works from the immediate and distant past, including music by John Bull, the inaugural Gresham Professor of Music.

Dr Ingrid Pearson is currently Deputy Head of the Graduate School at the Royal College of Music, London. Following the receipt of an ORS Award in 1995, she travelled to the U.K. to undertake doctoral studies in performance practice at the University of Sheffield with Colin Lawson. Her thesis, entitled Clarinet Reed Position in Theory and Practice: the Forgotten Art of Reed-Above, investigated eighteenth and nineteenth century clarinet repertoire and performance styles as well as organological and iconographical sources.

Ingrid was born in Newcastle, Australia and began her clarinet studies at Newcastle Conservatorium. She graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Music Honours in performance and a Diploma of Education in music.

During 2001 she was an Edison Research Fellow at the National Sound Archive, researching recorded woodwind performing practices. Recent research includes a study of the thirteen-keyed clarinet in Italy, supported by The Galpin Society.

In addition to her academic work, Ingrid performs as an early clarinettist with ensembles such as The Hanover Band, Gabrieli Consort and Players, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists, The English Concert and The Symphony of Harmony and Invention. Recent concert appearances include performances at the BBC Proms, the Lincoln Center Mostly Mozart Festival, the Barbican and Wigmore Hall.
