Richard Steggall – Horn

Richard Steggall graduated from the Royal College of Music in 1998, where he studied with Julian Baker and Pip Eastop.  He has worked with many of the top London orchestras and has played guest principal horn with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Philharmonia, BBC Concert Orchestra, National Symphony, English National Ballet and Britten Sinfonia. 

An interest in chamber and contemporary music has led Richard to perform with the Fine Arts Brass Quintet, Composers Ensemble, Golden Section, Lontano and the Haffner Wind Quintet.  As a soloist, he has premiered works at the British Horn Society Festival and the Hoxton Festival and has performed Mozart’s 4th Horn Concerto with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. 

Although Richard is proud of these achievements, his most memorable moment was when he opened Live8 in Hyde Park, playing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with Sir Paul McCartney and U2, dressed as John Lennon.  In his spare time Richard is a member of the orchestra of Phantom of the Opera. 

While a pupil at Portsmouth Grammar School, Richard played for local amateur operatic societies, in Hampshire County Youth Orchestra and Havant Symphony Orchestra (alongside his teacher, Bridget Bartholomew) and was soloist in Mozart’s 4th horn concerto with the South-East Hants Youth Orchestra.
