Nicholas Korth, ‘subtlest of first horns’, has held the position of Co-principal Horn with the BBC Symphony Orchestra since 2000.
In this capacity he has performed in many ‘prom’ concerts at the Royal Albert Hall (including several first and last nights), toured throughout the world and been involved in countless radio and TV broadcasts.
He appears regularly as guest principal horn and soloist with many ensembles including the London Mozart Players, the Britten Sinfonia and the London Sinfonietta. He has performed with some of Britain’s leading classical musicians and is active on the London film session scene.
He is also a composer with a passion for the magical world of natural harmony, the extraordinary sounds of overtone singing and lyrical and sensitive word setting.
Nicholas’s music has often been performed by the London Conchord Ensemble, notably in the USA, at the Wigmore Hall and on Radio 3. He has also worked closely with the extraordinary overtone singer Rollin Rachele, tenor James Gilchrist and soprano Olivia Robinson.
