Jan Waterfield (harpsichord) and Laszlo Rozsa (recorder) play division music with food crafted by Rum, Egg and Muck.
Jan Waterfield read music at Girton College, Cambridge, where she was also a choral scholar. This was followed by postgraduate studies in harpsichord and piano with John Toll and David Willison at the RAM in London, where she won prizes for both lieder accompaniment and continuo playing. After graduating from the RAM, she was a member of the prestigious European Union Baroque Orchestra, working alongside Jaap ter Linden and Andrew Manze. Jan has been a member of Paul McCreesh’s Gabrieli Consort since 1993, taking part in their many award-winning projects. Since 2009 she has been their principal harpsichordist and was a major player (both as organist and researcher) in their recent disc ‘A New Venetian Coronation’, the recipient of a 2013 gramophone award. She is also a regular player with the Academy of Ancient Music, the Classical Opera Company, His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, La Serenissima, the Scottish Ensemble, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Ludus Baroque. She was a contributor to John Eliot Gardiner’s Bach Cantata pilgrimage of 2000 – the extraordinary series of live recordings made from a year’s journey through Europe, performing the whole cycle of Bach’s church cantatas. Her solo highlights range from recording the complete virginals works of Martin Peerson to playing Gorecki’s concerto for amplified harpischord live from London’s Wigmore Hall on BBC R3. Jan has been active as a teacher at the Britten-Pears School in Aldeburgh, the Guildhall School in London, the Academie Baroque Européene in France as well as both Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh Universities and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Her experience as a vocal coach results in a steady stream of singers beating a path to her door. She is a regular duo partner of the soprano Mhairi Lawson, the bass Brian Bannatyne-Scott and the ‘cellist Christopher Suckling. She can sometimes be found playing the accordion with the klezmer group ‘Kleyne Klezmer’. “ highlights include the gentle warmth of Jan Waterfield’s organ playing” (BBC Music magazine, 2012) “wonderfully delicate chamber organ solos, played by Jan Waterfield” (Bachtrack 2012)
Laszlo Rozsa (recorder) was born in Budapest in 1989, where he began his musical education. At the age of fifteen he entered the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna, where he pursued preparatory studies with Helge M. Stiegler. He continued his studies with Peter Holtslag at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hamburg and later on at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he graduated with distinction in 2013.
As a soloist and chamber musician he enjoys a varied freelance career both in the UK and abroad, sharing the platform with distinguished musicians such as Elizabeth Wallfisch, Michael Chance, Laurence Cummings, Margaret Faultless, and Jan Waterfield and performing with leading early music ensembles and orchestras including Spiritato!, Ars Eloquentiae, Elbipolis Hamburg, Camerata Trajectina, Bassano Ensemble Berlin and the Hamburg Symphonic Orchestra. Recently he has recorded two albums with Spiritato! for Resonus Classics and performed with the Ensemble Senesino throughout China.
László is passionate about contemporary music; he enjoys collaborating with composers and has premiered several new compositions. Latest projects have included touring and recording with the contemporary music company Sound Affairs (Charlie Barber: ‘Michelangelo Drawing Blood’).
László’s utmost aspiration as a musician is to discover the broadest possibilities of his instrument both in early and contemporary music. Besides performing, he is a keen educator, currently teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of Glasgow. He has also taught and led workshops at the Royal Academy of Music and the University of York. As a result of a growing interest in the research of new concepts and possibilities of interactive and reactive music making, László is currently undertaking a PhD course at the University of Glasgow under the joint supervision of John Butt and David McGuinness which is generously supported by a scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Rum Egg and Muck is a collaboration between Emily Parry and Sam Cook. The first project was instigated in 2015 following a shared interest in seasonal, local and wild foods. They are nomadic cooks, investigating food as both an individualistic sensory experience, but also as a tool in the development of interpersonally and community.
