Adrian Brown
Adrian Brown comes from a distinguished line of Sir Adrian Boult's most gifted pupils.
...
In 1992 Adrian Brown was engaged to conduct one of the great orchestras of the world: the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1998 he was invited to work with the Camerata Salzburg, one of Europe's foremost chamber orchestras at the request of Sir Roger Norrington. In addition, Adrian has conducted many leading British orchestras including the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. He is also a great proponent of contemporary music and has several first performances to his credit.
In 1972 Adrian was appointed Music Director of Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra, a position from which he stands down in March 2013 after 40 years. In honour of this, a celebratory concert will be held at Cadogan Hall on 24 March 2013. It is felt he has made some contribution to the musical education of quite a few youngsters over a long period. Working with young musicians has been an area where Adrian Brown has made a valuable contribution to British musical life, as well as in Europe, Japan and the Philippines. He has frequently conducted both the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (working closely with Sir Colin Davis and Sir Roger Norrington) and the National Youth Wind Orchestra. He regularly runs courses for young musicians, coaches gifted young conductors and was given the Novello Award for Youth Orchestras at the 1989 Edinburgh Festival.
He has returned to conduct at the Royal Academy of Music and regularly been selected as chairman of the jury for the National Association of Youth Orchestras' Conducting Competition. In 1996 he was flown to Japan to work with the Toyama Toho Academy Orchestra, a visit that was received with much acclaim from all those with whom he worked.
His many most memorable engagements have included Tippett's Child of Our Time, Verdi's Requiem and almost the entire oeuvre of Berlioz, Elgar and Vaughan Williams, all much admired. He received rave reviews in The Guardian for a performance of Strauss's Feuersnot with the Chelsea Opera Group and for his Ein Heldenleben. He has performed successful concerts with the Salomon Orchestra, returning to them in February 2005 for a concert at St. John's, Smith Square, performing British music including Tippett's Concerto for Orchestra, to acclamation.
Between 2005 and 2008, Adrian Brown conducted many concerts of music celebrating the Centenary of Sir Michael Tippett, and joined the panel of jury members of Music for Youth, as well as accepting invitations to perform with the Isle of Wight Symphony, Bromley Ecumenical Singers, and the Hertfordshire Philharmonia, as well as conducting in Dresden and Prague.

In his 60th Birthday Year, 2009, Adrian was appointed Music Director of Huntingdonshire Philharmonic and conducted works with many orchestras on a 'celebration wish list' including Sibelius' Fourth, Mahler's Ninth and Elgar's First symphonies. He also had a major success conducting the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra in Vilnius in a concert which was broadcast nationally. Bromley Symphony honoured him with a 30th Anniversary/60th Birthday concert in November, where he was presented with a Vaughan Williams autograph letter.
During 2010 he conducted some forty concerts including an acclaimed performance of Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius in Ely Cathedral, Elgar's Enigma Variations in Girona Cathedral, a stunning debut with the Corinthian Orchestra in Central London and an important lecture to the Berlioz Society where his CD recording from Lithuania of the Berlioz Symphonie fantastique was much admired as one of the best interpretations.
2010-11 included a return for two concerts with the Corinthian Chamber Orchestra, one in the Queen Elizabeth Hall in June. Programmes of Elgar and of Rachmaninov's Third Symphony, were received with critical and audience acclaim, and Adrian has again been invited to be one of two conductors working with the Corinthian Chamber Orchestra during their 2012-13 season. Other concerts in Huntingdon, Bromley and London have included admired readings of Gerontius, Mendelssohn's Elijah, Sibelius, Nielsen's Fifth, and the centenaries of Petrushka and Elgar's Second Symphony. In addition, Bromley Symphony celebrated the Anniversaries of Mahler's birth and death with his Fifth Symphony, and Waveney Sinfonia presented a special concert of Vaughan Williams and Elgar. Adrian also conducted concerts at the Royal Academy of Music and Royal College of Music with Stoneleigh Youth.
The 2011-12 season saw three concerts with the Corinthian Chamber Orchestra performing Elgar's First Symphony in May again in the Queen Elizabeth Hall. This was an amazing success, endorsing opinions that Adrian is a major Elgar conductor.
...
Plans for 2012-13 will include one work at least of Britten for the centenary with every orchestra, appropriate for Suffolk born and bred Adrian. One such instance is a return to the Salomon Orchestra in February conducting Sinfonia da Requiem at St John's Smith Square. He will perform Britten Songs in the birthplace, Lowestoft, with Waveney Sinfonia, the Violin Concerto conducting the Corinthian Chamber Orchestra at St James's Piccadilly in May, plus two other appearances and the Grimes Sea Interludes with the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic.
...
Adrian Brown was one of a hundred musicians presented with a prestigious Classic FM Award at their Tenth Birthday Honours Celebration in June 2002.
"No histrionics here - just honest music-making of quality. Adrian Brown conducted a superb reading of Rachmaninoff's Third Symphony which was excellently played to a very high technical standard.
