special honors go to first horn Nicholas Korth [of the BBC Symphony Orchestra] for “alp-horning” the great solo across the chasms in the finale [of Brahm's first symphony] so peerlessly

quotes by David Nice, Arts Desk

a63He first had lessons with his mentor, the distinguished horn soloist Ifor James, at the age of eleven. Four years later he joined Ifor in Germany for a further five years study at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg. He has also worked in Norway as a member of the Oslo Philharmonic under Marriss Jansons in the early nineties.

Over the past decade, Nicholas has become increasingly fascinated by the world of natural harmony, in particular in the extraordinary art of overtone singing. This is reflected in his recent series of compositions, Harmoniae Naturales I – V.
