Graham O’Sullivan


Graham O’Sullivan fell under the spell of early flutes whilst an undergraduate reading English Literature at Cambridge, studying first with Rachel Brown and later with Lisa Beznosiuk at the Royal Academy of Music and Barthold Kuijken at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague, where his studies were supported by scholarships from both the Countess of Munster Music Trust and Leverhulme Trust. Whilst studying in The Netherlands Graham was selected to join the European Union Baroque Orchestra for their tours in 2000. Since then, as an orchestral musician, Graham has worked with most of the UK’s leading baroque ensembles, including Dunedin Consort, the Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert, The Sixteen, The English Baroque Soloists and The Gabrieli Consort and Players. Graham has played both flute and recorder for Dunedin Consort for over twenty years and can be heard on a number of the ensemble’s acclaimed recordings, including those of Bach’s Passions, his Mass in B minor, and Monteverdi’s Vespers. As a chamber musician Graham can most frequently be heard performing with his wife, the harpsichordist Mie Hayashi, and gambist Susanna Pell in their ensemble The Herschel Trio, based in the north of England.
