Praised by the New York Times for the “limpid sweetness” of his baroque flute playing, David Ross performs as baroque flute soloist with the Sebastians, as principal flutist with Mercury, and many other ensembles including the English Concert, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Washington Bach Consort, Trinity Wall Street Baroque Orchestra, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, New York Baroque Incorporated, Early Music New York, REBEL, Bach Society of Minnesota, and Lyra Baroque Orchestra.
David earned historical performance degrees from both the Koninlijk Conservatorium in Holland and the Juilliard School in NYC. Since 2009 his training and career have been focused exclusively on historical performance ranging from one-keyed baroque flutes to many-keyed flutes and piccolos of the romantic era. Prior to his specialization in early music he studied modern flute at the Cleveland Institute of Music. David teaches privately from his home in NYC.
