Neil Brough

Principal trumpet with Sir John Eliot Gardinerís English Baroque Soloists and the Orchestre Rťvolutionaire et Romantique, Neil Brough is a specialist in the historical performance of music of the Baroque era right through to the early twentieth century; from the stratospheric high clarino style of the Baroque era on the valveless trumpet, through the wonderfully inventive period of the nineteenth century, to composers such as Stravinsky and Ibert on authentic instruments.  

Neilís ability to switch styles in an instant makes him one of the most versatile trumpet players working today. He plays principal trumpet for many of the leading chamber orchestras, most notably the English Chamber Orchestra, and period instrument orchestras throughout the UK and Europe.

He is equally at home in the studio recording for film and television, and in hit musicals in Londonís West End.  

Neilís solo recordings include Bachís Cantata 51 with Natalie Dessay and Emmanuelle HaÔm, Brandenburg Concerto No.2 with John Eliot Gardiner, Bach Mass in B Minor with Arcangelo, Bach Ascension Cantatas with Matthew Halls & Retrospect Ensemble and live broadcasts with counter-tenor Iestyn Davies.

Neil is Professor of Natural Trumpet at the Royal College of Music
