Ian Scott



Ian Scott, Principal Clarinet, is perhaps one of the more familiar of the orchestra's principals, taking his curtain call on stage at the end of Stanton Welch's Powder around twenty times in the last couple of years. Ian started both the clarinet and piano at 15, influenced by a recording of Mozart's Quintet by the famous English clarinettist Reginald Kell. He trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with Henry Morrison and then at the University of Arizona with John Denman, before taking up his first professional job as principal clarinet with the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon. He has played with all the London orchestras and recorded with the London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony and London Symphony orchestras and chamber music recordings with his groups The Clarinet Section and Harmoniemusik of London.

Ian has recently recorded a CD of British Clarinet Concertos with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, conducted by Gavin Sutherland. In January 2005 there are plans to record a second CD with the orchestra's Music Director, Barry Wordsworth. This recording will bring to light two more British Clarinet Concertos by Leighton Lucas and Humphrey Procter-Gregg.
