Claire Wickes, having made speedy progress with positions in the BBCSO and the Philharmonia before settling in as principal Flute at the ENO, pursues a diverse career as soloist and chamber musician, and this eclectic and bold programme with the harpist Tomos Xerri demonstrates their refreshingly catholic enthusiasms.
