John Wallace has an extensive list of recordings to his name. In addition to recording with the Philharmonia all the major trumpet repertoire for Nimbus, he has recorded Malcolm Arnold’s Trumpet Concerto (together with a trumpet and keyboard disc in the Virtuosi series for EMI) and concertos by Maxwell Davies and, most recently, James MacMillan with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. With the Wallace Collection he has recorded a series of highly acclaimed discs the majority of which have been made available again under the group’s own label.
John Wallace was born in Fife, Scotland. He read Music at King’s College, Cambridge before engaging in post-graduate study at York University (in Composition) and the Royal Academy of Music. Until 1995, he was Principal Trumpet of the Philharmonia, a position he held for nearly twenty years. He also served as Artistic Director of Brass at the Royal Academy for nine years before his recent appointment as Principal of the RSAMD. With Professor Trevor Herbert he is co-editor of the Cambridge University Press Companion to Brass Instruments and he is currently researching the history and development of the trumpet for publication by Yale University Press.
