David Stanhope Music
Welcome to the website of David Stanhope!
News July 2018

Much thanks is due to Ormond Professor Gary McPherson and his staff (especially Sasha) for holding the official launch of my CDs Australian Fantasia and Australian Premières on June the 13th. The Melbourne Conservatorium was the most relevant choice for the launch, as two of the composers on the second CD had strong ties with that institution: George Marshall-Hall being the first Ormond Professor and Peter Tahourdin being a staff member for several years.

Tomorrow Belinda Webster and I set off for Adelaide to record percussion concertos as mentioned in my last newsletter.


Further uploads to the Australian Music Centre have been made. All three of my Folksong Suites for Band are now available from the AMC. The 2nd Suite is the revised version, the original version (the now defunct Novello edition) should be ignored henceforth!











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.
