Nick Walkley is principal cornet with Manger Musikklag in Norway, and has regularly performed both as recital soloist and as a featured band soloist. He is committed to promoting new and original music for cornet as a professional performing musician. In past recitals he has also performed cornet concerti by Denis Wright, Ernest Tomlinson and Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen.
Nick graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with a distinction in Master of Arts. The final recital was a key component of the study programme and was typically focused on nationalist and folk themes. Contemporary Nordic and British repertoire remains a key focus of Nick’s interest.
Recital programme: ‘Fanfare and Folk Song’
In 2012 Nick also performed a recital in the Guards Chapel, London, entitled ‘Europe by Cornet’. A review of that recital can be read here:
Nick also enjoys performing light popular music, particularly of a folk inspired nature.
