David Nuttall is a Churchill Fellow and one of Australia’s finest oboists. He is a master teacher who was, until 2005, Associate Professor at the Australian National University. Prior to his appointment at the ANU he was Associate Principal Oboist in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Several of David’s former students hold important positions in Australia and overseas. He has performed as soloist with most of Australia’s symphony orchestras and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. As a member of the Canberra Wind Soloists, the wind quintet based at the ANU, he has given concerts to great acclaim throughout the world. His many CDs recorded for ABC Classics and Tall Poppies are regularly broadcast on ABC Classic FM. The repertoire covers a wide variety of styles. His associate artists on the discs include Larry Sitsky, piano, Timothy Kain, guitar, the Canberra Wind Soloists, The Australia Ensemble and the Australian Youth Orchestra.

David is delighted to have joined the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as Principal Oboist in November 2006. In 2009 David performed as soloist with the orchestra in the Concerto in F Major RV455 by Vivaldi. More recently he joined them in playing the Oboe concerto of Marcello and the Concerto for Oboe and Violin by J.S. Bach. In 2011, David was tutor for the Australian Youth Orchestra Wind Quintet Regional Residency program.
