Joy has performed concertos with orchestras such as the Philharmonia, the English Chamber Orchestra, the City of London Sinfonia, the London Mozart Players, The Ulster Orchestra and the Britten Sinfonia, with whom she made her second recording of the Mozart Concerto for BMG Conifer which went straight into the classical charts in its first week of release and is now a best seller.

Joy is Principal Clarinet of the Britten Sinfonia and has been booked as guest principal clarinet with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Joy is a founder member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble with whom she has broadcast and toured widely. They are one of world's finest Wind Ensembles, with regular tours to America and a busy concert season at home. They have broken down many barriers with their education work, always led by Joy Farrall, which has introduced many hundreds of children to hands on music making.

As a recitalist Joy has appeared at music societies and festivals all over Britain, at the Purcell Room and the Wigmore Hall in London, as well as in Spain, Australia, Finland, and Norway. She has appeared as guest soloist with the Szymanowski, Vanbrugh, Kreutzer, Medea, Brindisi, New Leipzig, Schidloff and Pellegrini String Quartets. Festival appearances include Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Kuhmo, Stockholm, Crusell Week, Leicester and Cambridge.

Joy has great enthusiasm for new music and has had many new works written for and dedicated to her, most notably Simon Bainbridge's Double concerto and Clarinet Quintet, works by Oliver Knussen and John McCabe and most recently Edward Cowie's 'Elysium'.

Joy has had special success as a recording artist, particularly as a Mozartian, but also in diverse repertoire. Her recordings include the complete Mozart Clarinet works on three discs for Meridian, the Strauss Duet Concertino for EMI, the Mozart Sinfonia Concertante and Concerto for the Classic FM label, which she performs on the Bassett Clarinet, and various chamber music works for both Chandos and Hyperion. Her most recent CD release is a disc of Italian Bel Canto Clarinet Concertos with the Britten Sinfonia on ASV, and it has already been well received by the press and played on radio stations all over the world.

Joy has also worked with the Nash Ensemble, Albion Ensemble, the Endymion Ensemble and with a number of quartets, including the Lindsay Quartet, Pereginni Quartet, Vanbrugh Quartet and the New Leipzig Quartet.

In addition to her work as a performer, Joy Farrall is a dedicated teacher who has done a great deal to influence the shape of British clarinet playing in the last 18 years through her work as a Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as well as in her frequent master classes both at home and abroad.

Joy has also been involved in project based education work with composers for the London Sinfonietta and the Britten Sinfonia.
