Bradley Creswick OBE
Bradley Creswick has a long association with the Northern Sinfonia, going back to 1984 when he was first appointed leader. One highlight from that first period with the Sinfonia was a performance of Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No 2 for BBC Radio 3. In 1987 he moved to London to lead the Philharmonia, returning to make guest appearances with the Sinfonia, notably as soloist with them in the 1989 BBC Proms, playing The Lark Ascending.
In London he served as leader of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House before taking the opportunity, in 1994, to return to the Sinfonia and the Northeast for a second time, working at The Sage Gateshead. Bradley Creswick has been invited twice to the Marlboro Music Festival in America and is asked regularly to guest-lead a wide range of orchestras. He also appears throughout Britain in recitals with the pianist Margaret Fingerhut.
His recordings include Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending and Concerto Accademico with Richard Hickox on EMI, all the Handel Concerti Grossi Op 6 with George Malcolm, Handel Concerti Grossi Op 3 for Naxos and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.
David has had a long career as a musician working in the North East of England. He has combined a career in performance with a strong commitment to teaching over many years. He is well known as a solo pianist, chamber musician and accompanist, and he has also trained many accomplished pianists, now making their own way in the the professional world.
