Nicholas Daniel

Nicholas Daniel’s long and distinguished career began when, at the age of 18, he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition and went on to win further competitions in Europe. At his debut at the BBC Proms in 1992 the Sunday Times described him as one of the greatest exponents of the oboe in the world, a title which he still holds today. As one of the UK’s most distinguished soloists as well as a highly successful conductor, he has also been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Medal for Music.

Nicholas has been heard on every continent, and has been a concerto soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, working under conductors such as Sakari Oramo, Sir Roger Norrington, Oliver Knussen, Richard Hickox, Jiri Belohlavek, David Robertson, Sir Mark Elder and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. In addition to his extensive experience in Baroque and 19th-century music, he is an important force in the creation and performance of new repertoire for oboe, and has premiered works by composers including Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Henri Dutilleux, Thea Musgrave, Nigel Osborne, John Tavener, James MacMillan and Sir Michael Tippett. He is regularly invited to play in the Proms and such occasions have included several world premieres and contemporary pieces as well as more traditional repertoire such as Mozart and Vaughan Williams.

An active chamber musician, Nicholas is a founder member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble and the Britten Oboe Quartet and enjoys a long history of collaboration with artists including the pianist Julius Drake and the Maggini, Lindsay and Carducci string quartets. Nicholas is a regular visitor to the major international chamber music festivals, such as Kuhmo, Cork and Delft. He has made frequent appearances at the Aldeburgh Festival and plays regularly at London’s Wigmore Hall.
