Educated at Salisbury Cathedral School, the Purcell School and at the Royal Academy of Music, Nicholas Daniel studied with Janet Craxton, Celia Nicklin and George Caird. At the age of eighteen he was the winner of the BBC’s prestigious Young Musician of the Year Competition, and went on to win numerous other competitions, including the International Double Reed Society competition in Graz, and the Munich International Oboe Competition, where he was the first British prize-winner. He made his début at the BBC Promenade Concerts in London 1992 when still only in his twenties, returning to appear as a soloist in subsequent years. Today, one of the Britain’s most distinguished and charismatic soloists, he is also noted for his championing of new repertoire for the instrument and has recently been appointed artistic director of the Osnabruck Festival, Germany and of the Isle of Wight International Oboe Competition. Nicholas Daniel has been heard in recital on almost every continent, and has been a concerto soloist with major European orchestras in collaboration with distinguished conductors. An active chamber musician, he is a founding member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble, one of the leading wind ensembles in Britain, and has enjoyed a long collaboration with the pianist Julius Drake, with whom he has given premières of a number of important new works. He was Professor of Oboe and Conducting at the Indiana University School of Music from 1997 to 1999 and his outstanding musical achievements have been recognised by the major London conservatories, all of which have conferred honorary awards. Nicholas Daniel can be heard on more than twenty recordings for major record companies.
