David Stanhope Music
Welcome to the website of David Stanhope!
News July 2017

Progress has been made with parting of the ways between myself and Southern Music. The process is still not yet finally complete, but I am reasonably confident that next month I can be fully represented by the Australian Music Centre for all my works with the exception of the two with The Hornists' Nest.

I have received a score from the composer David Sydney Morgan - his 13th symphony. I have not had time to study it yet, but I hope I may be able to create a performance of it with my digital orchestra. At the moment I am busy with an orchestration of a work by Rachmaninoff, which will no doubt appear on one of my PhD CDs. As these CDs will be issued by Tall Poppies, I have had some discussion with the company's director, Belinda Webster, about the name of the orchestra. We have agreed that "David Stanhope & His Orchestra" could be the solution!






David Stanhope is a free-lance conductor with wide experience in orchestral, opera, chamber and film music. He is a composer, especially for wind band, with many publications. As an instrumentalist, David Stanhope was a french horn player for many years before switching to bass trombone; he is also a virtuoso pianist.
