Tabea Debus - Recorder
Described by The Times as a ‘charismatic virtuoso’ Tabea is much sought after as soloist, collaborator, educator and teacher. Over the last year she has given debut concerts across North America at Merkin Concert Hall (NY), the San Francisco, Napa Valley and Spoleto Festivals. She returned to the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern where she won the prestigious soloists prize, and appeared as soloist with La Serenissima, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and The English Concert.
Tabea has performed widely internationally, highlights including Wigmore Hall, the Summerwinds Münsterland, Musica Antiqua Bolzano, Edinburgh International Festival and the Funkhaus Cologne. Her collaborations include Elizabeth Kenny, the Castalian Quartet, Iestyn Davies and Rachel Podger, and premieres of new works by Gareth Moorcraft, Freya Waley-Cohen, Alex Nante and Sylvia Lim.
Over the last two years she has recorded the critically acclaimed Ohrwurm for Delphian, Settecento with La Serenissama for Signum, and Sounds Familiar with GWK in Germany. Passionate about outreach work, Tabea has contributed to Saffron Hall and Music Masters education programmes, and given masterclasses at the Gstaad Baroque Academy, University of Music & Performing Arts Vienna and the Royal College of Music.
Born in Germany, Tabea studied at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and the Royal Academy of Music in London.

...Debus's whole 70-minute CD goes by like an informal but fiery set at a jazz club.
Early Music America / Delphian Ohrwurm / 2020
Debus is a brilliant recorder player on a variety of instruments... Fine, flexible playing... I suspect some of these tunes will follow you around all day.
Andrew MacGregor: BBC Radio 3 Record Review
Lovely, too, are the three chamber sonatas…graced by Debus’s exquisite recorder playing.
BBC Music Magazine / Settecento La Serenissima / 2021
It is not often that recorder players gain renown (...) but Debus, Musical America’s New Artist of the Month, is off to a prodigious start. For those who associate the instrument with a child’s first attempts at musicianship, Debus’s astonishingly dexterous, nuanced playing will come as a wake-up call.
Musical America - Artist of the Month 2020
This whole recording is so joyful...the musicianship is so big, so irrepressible that Telari transcends the instrument he is playing...You can't help smile throughout the joy of the virtuosity...it really is a fantastic journey through the Goldberg Variations.
Radio 3 Record Review / Delphian Records Goldberg Variations / July 2021
This Week's Essential New Classical Albums ...this album is beautifully recorded and performed by Terlari.
Gramophone / Delphian Records Goldberg Variations / August 2021
Telari belongs to a generation of artists whose overwhelming musicality goes beyond their instrument: here, Bach becomes an organ, Gubaidulina a mystical prayer, Saint-Saens a flaming Orchestra.
Il Sole24Ore / Carla Moreni / 2017
Telari is a total musician, a quiet, thoughtful and elegant artist, often absorbed in intangible listening practices.
Sandro Cappelletto / Limes CD / 2017
