‘I saw Solti conduct the LSO when I was at college in 1992: Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony and Maher Symphony No 5. It was breathtaking. I knew then that I simply had to play in this extraordinary group of musicians.’

Gareth Davies joined the LSO in 2000 and has also served as Chair of the Orchestra. As well as playing, he enjoys LSO Discovery work and has written several projects which have been performed in London and the US. His book, The Show Must Go On, was a book of the year in the Financial Times and Classical Music Magazine. He has written and presented programmes on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3, and is also in demand as a teacher and performer around the world.
