Huw Daniel (violin) Huw

Huw Daniel was a pupil at Ysgol Gymraeg Castell-nedd and Ysgol Gyfun  Ystalyfera, South Wales, and continued his education as an organ scholar at Robinson College, Cambridge, where he graduated with first-class  honours in music in 2001. He then studied at the Royal Academy of Music  for two years, learning the modern violin with Hu Kun and baroque violin with Simon Standage. Whilst at the Academy, Huw was awarded the John  Thomas Memorial Scholarship and the Dorothy Kennedy Davis Award; he also led the Academy’s period-instrument baroque orchestra in a concert at  the London Handel Festival.

Huw is a member of the English Concert. He also plays  regularly with many period-instrument chamber groups including the  Arcangelo Quartet, the Marésienne Consort, the Bach Players, and the  Musical & Amicable Society. In 2004, he was a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, the members of which formed Harmony of Nations and continue to play together under this name. Huw plays with several  other period-instrument orchestras, including the King’s Consort, the  Irish Baroque Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the  Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Les Arts Florissants, the London Handel  Orchestra and the Sixteen.

He is the leader of the Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música, Porto, Portugal, English Touring Opera’s baroque orchestra, and Harmony of Nations, and guest-leader of Collegium Musicum Telemann, Osaka,  Japan, and St James’s Baroque. He also guest-lead EUBO in October  2008. He plays the modern violin regularly with Sinfonia Cymru, the  National Chamber Orchestra of Wales, and the Neath Chamber Orchestra.
