Laurence Davies (horn)

Laurence Davies was appointed Principal Horn of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in June 2008, after 10 years as Principal Horn of the Philharmonia Orchestra. As a member of the Philharmonia he performed with some of the world’s finest musicians and regularly visited the greatest international festivals and concert halls. Laurence has been particularly featured as named soloist on Telarc’s CD of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony and Opera Rara’s recording of Rossini’s Otello.

As a concerto soloist he has performed Britten’s Serenade at the South Bank Centre with Mark Padmore (a piece he has played with many of England’s leading tenors) and Bayan Northcott’s Horn Concerto also at the SBC. He has also performed Schumann’s Konzertstück with the Philharmonia on several occasions and is one of the soloists on the acclaimed Deutsche Grammophon recording with Christian Thielemann. Most recently Laurence was asked to perform Mozart’s 4th Horn Concerto at the Philharmonia’s South Bank memorial concert to his predecessor Dennis Brain.

Laurence is in great demand as a guest Principal with the UK’s other symphony and chamber orchestras and as a chamber musician with such prestigious groups as London Winds and The Nash Ensemble. He is also a featured soloist on Cala Record’s new London Horn Sound CD and can be heard on many film and TV soundtracks.
