Oboe

Desmond Clarke Oboist

Recent engagements have been with York Guildhall Orchestra, Scarborough Symphony Orchestra, Opera Dei Lumi and contemporary music group Rarescale.

I'm interested in solo, ensemble and orchestral work, and while I specialise in contemporary music I have plenty of experience in the music of every period!

In 2014 I premiered Leo Birstwhistle's concerto for oboe and Nortumbrian Pipes, A Red Glow in the Sky, with Alice Burn and the Chimera Ensemble conducted by James Whittle.
