David Corkhill (percussion)

In a varied career as a player David has taken part in performances from Panufnik’s Concertino for percussion with Evelyn Glennie to Stockhausen’s Refrains and Zyklus at the Aldeburgh Festival, and he was invited by Sir George Solti to perform, film, and record for CBS Bartok’s Sonata for two pianos and percussion with Solti, Murray Periah and Evelyn Glennie, a recording that subsequently won a coveted Grammy award. David also played in Britten’s chamber opera The Turn of the Screw under the composer’s baton, the composer subsequently adding a specially composed timpani and percussion part to his cantata Rejoice in the Lamb for him as well as the timpani part his last opera Death in Venice.

David teaches timpani and conducting at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and between times continues as a busy composer and arranger: he recently completed the score of incidental music for the University of Southern California’s production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and 2011 saw the Italian and UK premieres of his St Francis for ensemble and narrator, commissioned by Southbank Sinfonia.

Now David is also equally well known as a conductor. Amongst many other ensembles he has directed the English Chamber Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of South Africa and the London Concert Orchestra, as well as conducting an ensemble for Maestro Christoph von Dohnányi at Vienna’s MusikVerein and at La Scala, Milan. In addition he is Staff Conductor at the Guildhall School of Music, Assistant Conductor Southbank Sinfonia, and Musical Director of Orchestra of the Arts.
