     Lloyd-Jones, David (19th November 1934-Present)

    He is an orchestral conductor and operatic translator and editor who studied at Magdalen College, Oxford.  He began his professional career in 1959 on the music staff of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and soon became much in demand as a freelance conductor for choral and orchestral concerts as well as BBC broadcasts and appeared at the Royal Opera House, the Welsh National Opera and the Scottish Opera.  In 1972 he was appointed Assistant Music Director of the English National Opera with whom he conducted the first British staging of Prokofiev's War and Peace.  In 1978 he founded a new opera company at the invitation of the Arts Council of Great Britain, which involved the creating of a new symphony orchestra called the English Northern Philharmonia.  During his 12 seasons with them he conducted 50 new productions that included Les Troyens and Die Meistersinger as well as the British premiere of Strauss's Daphne.  He has made a number of successful recordings, particularly of many British composers.
