Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in E-Flat Major “Romantic” (ed. Haas – version of1881)

Nicholas Gethin Cello

 

Nick Gethin (shown) started life as a modern linguist, but wisely changed direction when he was nearly thrown out of Oxford for not working. Periods of study in London (with Florence Hooton) and Vienna (with Andre Navarra) culminated in offers of a principal job in Scotland, and a co-principal one at English National Opera. He opted for the warmer one in London. Later he joined the London Symphony Orchestra, which has been his “home” for the last twenty years. Nick has given solo recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room, and at all the main recital venues in London, and has given performances of the Elgar, Dvorak, 2nd Shostakovich and Frank Bridge concertos, as well as the Rococo Variations and Don Quixote.
