David Campbell Yamaha Clarinet Artist

After spending eleven years in Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ chamber ensemble, ‘The Fires of London’ as well as playing regularly with the London Sinfonietta, London Mozart Players and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, David has more recently forged a career centered around solo repertoire and chamber music. His playing has taken him to over forty countries to work with as a soloist with leading orchestras and playing with string quartets and larger ensembles.

His repertoire is wide-ranging but he still champions new works, many of which have been written for him. As well as numerous broadcasts over the past thirty years, David has made many CDs covering a broad repertoire. His recording of the Clarinet Quintet by Sir Arthur Bliss with the Maggini Quartet on the Naxos label and recording of the Peter Lieuwen’s ‘River of Crystal Light’ received critical acclaim. The CD entitled, ‘Reflections’ comprising concertos by Gerald Finzi, Graham Fitkin and Carl Davis, is featured in the Classic FM top 300. A recording of Richard Blackford’s clarinet quintet ‘Full Moon’ with the Solstice Quartet, has just been released on Naxos. Another work by Blackford, Five Naidu Songs for mezzo-soprano string quartet and clarinet will be recorded for Naxos this autumn.

David is passionate about music education and is currently ‘Head of Woodwind’ at Westminster School and a Visiting Lecturer at City University in London and also teaches a few students at Kings College School, Wimbledon. He has been Artistic Director of Musicfest since 2001 and has tutored at courses in Harrogate, Dartington, York University, the Johann Strauss School of Music in Malta and Domaine Forget Academy in Quebec. In January 2018 he returns to Bahrain to adjudicate at the Young Musician of the Gulf Competition and will give a masterclass in Dubai. David also coaches members of the London Schools’ Symphony Orchestra.

Wood, Wind and Reed aim to make buying and owning an instrument easy and enjoyable. We choose the best products available to save you time and money. All instruments are tested and adjusted before sale and our reputation for pre and post sales service is the envy of our trade.

With such an extensive catalogue we are not able to keep all goods in stock all the time. We do keep hundreds of ligatures, double reeds, cleaners, cases and other accessories in stock and we can therefore dispatch the majority of orders within 48 hours.

Our extensive selection of student and professional instruments are given a final inspection, adjustment and test before they are dispatched so please allow around 5 working days for dispatch.
