Quentin Poole, Conductor

Quentin Poole's varied musical career embraces conducting, teaching, adjudicating and examining. He has given many first performances of orchestral and chamber works by the UK's leading composers, including broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and recordings for the NMC label with Endymion. As an educator, he has taught for more than twenty years for the National Youth Orchestra and for the Purcell School, where he was for twelve years the Director of Music. He has conducted Donizetti and Rossini for the Yorke Trust's summer opera production.

At the invitation of TV and Film composer John Keane, Quentin recently joined the teaching faculty of the National Film and Television School, where he works with the international group of composers on orchestration, conducting and recording. He conducted their recent sessions at Angel Studios, engineered by the late Steve Price, with members of 12 Ensemble and the Heath Quartet.

He assisted the New London Chamber Ensemble in the preparation of their performance of Mozart's Gran Partita for the Cheltenham Festival.
