Eve Friedman is a modern and historical flutist. She has recently performed with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the Delaware Symphony, Opera Philadelphia, American Bach Soloists, and Tafelmusik.
She can be heard on recordings with Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra Tempesta di Mare, early and contemporary works with Melomanie (including works of her husband and fellow SummerKeys faculty member, Roberto Pace), and the world music ensemble EZUZ. Her performances have been broadcast on NPR and the CBC.
Her solo playing has been called “particularly fine” by the Washington Post. About her first book, Tone Development on the Baroque Flute, the journal Early Music America wrote, “This carefully researched, imaginative book should be on every baroque flutist’s bookshelf.”
Dr. Friedman serves on the National Flute Association’s Historical Flutes Committee, and has recently been a judge and guest artist for the American Musicological Society, San Francisco Conservatory, and the Flute Society of Greater Philadelphia.
She received her MM from Boston University and holds a DM from Indiana University. Her current faculty appointments include Rowan, Drexel, and Temple Universities.
In the summer of 2003, she traveled to Italy with her husband, pianist-composer Roberto Pace, to perform at the festival Incontri di Canna. Each summer for the past thirteen years, they look forward to their annual SummerKeys concert as The Halcyon Duo.
