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 Lieuwens 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 Blackfords 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
