…Northern Sinfonia’s exceptional principal flautist Juliette Bausor takes the soloist’s role. She handles the long-breathed lines with ease and spiritedly engages with the bass trombone…

Great British Hope… Rising Star in the arts firmament
John Allison, The Times


Juliette Bausor gave a simply spellbinding account of Ibert’s Flute Concerto. The opening movement, with its daring runs, was keenly articulated. Bausor’s delivery was not only flawless, but had every scintillating note cast in sparkling relief as she took her instrument to the limits of its range. She enjoyed a witty repartee with the orchestra with a lovely exchange with the bassoon. The contrasting slow movement was played with a heartfelt conviction, with its long lines lovingly shaped. The last movement was breathtaking in every sense, with its jazzy inflexions given thrilling twists..

… The heavenly flute of Juliette Bausor.
Igor Toronyi-Lalic, The Arts Desk (Royal Northern Sinfonia/ Zehetmair)


Juliette Bausor’s virtuoso performance of Ibert’s attractive Flute Concerto… The elegant solo flautist – radiant of tone, glittering in ‘perpetual mobile’ passages, expressive in slow moments – was accompanied by colleagues at the top of their game…
Brian Paynes, Westmorland Gazette (Ibert Concerto/ Royal Northern Sinfonia/ Venzago)

…Juliette Bausor played the concerto with immaculate technique and stunning intonation… Sensitive, lyrical playing was offset by two substantial cadenzas for the soloists that showed off their virtuoso capabilities… played with such onomatopoeic colour and energy….
John Leeman, Musicweb-International, (Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp/ Catrin Finch/ Royal Northern Sinfonia/ Creswick)


The stately Overture to the 2nd Suite had a beautiful mock-pomposity, but then flautist Juliette Bausor became the star of the show. I have rarely heard such a cheerfully fluent and eloquent flute.
