"Anneke Scott is “rapidly emerging as one of the outstanding younger exponents of the natural horn”. Having begun her studies at The Royal Academy of Music, London she was awarded prestigious scholarships to further her study in France and Holland where she concentrated on the various aspects of period horns. ...
For many years she has had a keen interest in chamber music which led to her becoming a founder member of The Etesian Ensemble. Through this ensemble she met the fortepianist Kathryn Cok with whom she formed a duo specialising in classical and romantic repertoire for horn and fortepiano. Kathryn and Anneke have recently been selected as two of Makng Music’s Concert Promoters Network Artists for 2008/2009.
An integral element of Anneke Scott’s career has been research. During 2005-2006 she undertook research at the University of Birmingham’s Centre for Early Music Performance where she currently teaches period horns. In 2005 she received the great privilege of being invited by The Bate Collection, Oxford to perform in concert on one of their magnificent original Hofmaster horns dating from the mid 18th century and in 2006 was interviewed by BBC TV for the BBC2 series The People’s Museum discussing the Hofmaster horns housed at Edinburgh University.
