Nicholas Daniel is one of the UK’s most distinguished soloists as well as an increasingly successful conductor. Upon his 1992 début at the BBC Proms, the Sunday Times described him as one the greatest exponents of the oboe in the world. A dynamic ambassador for music and musicians in many different fields, he was awarded the 2011 Queen’s Medal for Music.
The artist has been heard on every continent, has performed under many of the world’s leading conductors, and makes regular appearances at numerous international music festivals. 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 and recorded works by many of today’s leading composers including Thea Musgrave and Elliot Carter.
