Karin de Fleyt is an internationally renowned flutist and soloist in contemporary music. She is constantly looking for new experiments for flute which often results in great collaborations with many well known composers, one of the most memorable is a ten year long collaboration with Karlheinz Stockhausen. One of de Fleyts prime objectives as a performer and teacher in music is her extensive work with young people, teaching them the techniques and skills to confidently interpret new music styles. For this she regularly gives masterclasses, workshops and lecture-recitals.
Karin de Fleyt is a solo flutist and member of the artistic board in the HERMESensemble (B) and founder of The Stockhausen-Trio. She has been awarded with many interpretation prizes during the Stockhausen Courses in Kürten (G). in 2013 she won the first prize together with Senne La Mela and Peter Merckx for the performance of SCHÖNHEIT (6th Hour of KLANG) for flute, trumpet and bass clarinet. In 2015-2016 de Fleyt undertook a research project at the AP Hogeschool with the title From zero to void, encounters with Mary Bauermeister and Karlheinz Stockhausen in the sixties. She currently teaches music pedagogics for Winds at the School of Arts in Ghent and is flute tutor in Leeds at the LCoM.
