Fascinated by early and contemporary music alike, recorder player Imogen Morris is active both as a soloist and in a variety of ensemble settings. She has performed concerts in Germany, Austria, and South Korea, as well as with leading New Zealand ensembles such as Age of Discovery, NZ Barok, and the Karlheinz Company.
In 2017, she completed a Master of Music in recorder under the tutelage of Prof. Peter Holtslag at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg. Prior to this, she received her Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland, studying under Jessica Shaw. Her education has been augmented by masterclasses with Han Tol, Myriam Eichberger, Peter van Heyghen, and Martin Ripper, among others.
In March 2018, Imogen began a PhD at the University of Auckland investigating baroque alto recorders in g’ and their repertoire, supervised by Dr Allan Badley and James Tibbles.
Research | Current
For her PhD research, Imogen is investigating baroque alto recorders in g’ and their repertoire, in terms of both historical practice and the implications of this for players today. As such, she is interested in the following broad research areas:
- Recorder performance, history, and repertoire
- Historically Informed Performance
- Creative Practice Research
Outside of this, Imogen is interested in contemporary recorder music (especially works written by New Zealand composers) and recorder pedagogy.
