David Jolley, a graduate of The Juilliard School, is one of the leading horn players of his generation. A founding member of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, he has also collaborated with the Guarneri Quartet, the American String Quartet, the Beaux Arts Trio, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as well as pianists André Watts and Murray Perahia. A former member of the Dorian Wind Quintet, Jolley founded the quintet Windscape in 1994 with four other eminent New York soloists. Many works have been written for him, including Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Concerto for Horn and String Orchestra, John Harbison’s Twilight Music, George Tsontakis’ Dust and Shiver and George Perle’s Duo for Horn and String Quartet. Among his numerous recordings are more than two dozen CDs with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra—Gramophone hailed him in its performances of two Mozart concertos as a “soloist second to none”—as well as solo discs containing the Strauss Horn Sonata with Samuel Sanders, works by Alec Wilder, and French Romantic repertoire. A frequent soloist with orchestras across the country, Jolley also teaches at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Mannes College of Music, and Queens College of the City University of New York.
