Jonathan Small has been principal oboist of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra since 1984. His aspirations in oboe playing stem from the expressive flexibility of British artists such as Goossens, Sutcliffe, and Michael Winfield, his teacher at the Royal College of Music, blended with the richness of tone of the German school as exemplified by the Berlin Philharmonic’s Lothar Koch. His recordings include L’horloge de Flore by Jean Françaix, Vaughan Williams’s Oboe Concerto, and Richard Strauss’s Oboe Concerto. He has performed regularly as a soloist in Europe, including at the Prague Spring Festival, in the United States, China and Australia. In 2001 and 2004 he gave master-classes and concerts in Beijing, where he is Guest Professor at the Central Conservatory of Music. He teaches at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
