David Beck

David Beck
David worked as a professional violinist in Manchester (UK) having served at various times in the Hallé, the Manchester Camerata and the BBC Northern (later Philharmonic) orchestras. Composition took a back seat during his playing career, but it came to the fore after his retirement from the BBC. His compositions are usually in answer to requests from colleagues.
