Frank Lloyd, horn

Frank Lloyd was born into a non-musical family in Cornwall in 1952. He took up the trombone in his school brass band at the age of thirteen, and on leaving school at fifteen he joined the Royal Marines Band Service, subsequently changing to the French horn. In 1975 he left the services to embark on a course at the Royal Academy of Music as a pupil of Ifor James. Within three months, however, he was offered the position of Principal Horn with the Royal Scottish Orchestra, now the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. After four and a half years in Scotland he returned to London and took up a post with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, remaining with them for three years. By this time his career was taking a different direction as demand for him as a soloist and chamber-music player increased. Soon after leaving the Royal Philharmonic he joined the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and the Nash Ensemble and the English Chamber Orchestra as Principal Horn. During this time he performed as a soloist as far afield as Winnipeg and Vancouver in Canada, in Japan, Taiwan, Australia and in all parts of the United States. He has featured on several occasions at the International Horn Workshops in the United States, Japan and Europe, and tours Europe extensively, giving master classes, performing as a soloist, and as a member of groups such as German Brass, Ensemble Villa Musica. For several years he served as Professor of Horn at both the Guildhall School of Music and Trinity School of Music in London, and in 1998 was appointed Professor of Horn at the Essen Folkwang-Hochschule, where he succeeded the renowned Hermann Baumann. His recordings include Richard Strauss's Horn Concerto No. 1 with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Mozart's Horn Quintet with the Nash Ensemble, together with other chamber works, and Britten's Serenade with the City of London Sinfonia. He has recorded all of the Mozart horn concertos with Richard Hick ox and the Northern Sinfonia Orchestra. His achievements have been recognized by the award of the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Music.
