Yamaha Music UK has announced that internationally renowned Clarinettist, acclaimed teacher, and Yamaha artist David Campbell will be heading up a 5-date tour of the UK.

There’ll also be an opportunity to meet Yamaha specialists, try the custom clarinet range first hand, receive complimentary gifts, and be entered into a competition to receive a private master class with Campbell.

Campbell has performed regularly with the London Sinfonietta, London Mozart Players and the London Philharmonic Orchestra and more recently has forged a highly successful career based on solo repertoire and chamber music.

He is also hugely committed to assisting the next generation of young clarinettists and is currently ‘Head of Woodwind’ at Westminster School and a visiting Lecturer at London’s City University.

After some 35 years, Campbell changed to Yamaha CSG III clarinets in October 2016 and this UK tour is the latest example of Yamaha and Campbell collaborating. Together they now undertake regular workshops, presentations, master classes and concerts across the country.

“I switched to Yamaha CSG III clarinets exactly a year ago. Since then I have opened the case every day with real excitement about playing them. They make a great sound, have reliable and very stable intonation and the design and build quality ensure that everything works! At last I can concentrate solely on the music and my interpretation,” said Campbell.
