Jonathan Small, principal oboist and soloist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Guest Professor of Oboe at Beijing Central Conservatory enjoys a seasoned reputation as a highly individual artist, whose eloquent, inspired playing combines individuality with unceasing scholarship. His aspirations as an oboist stem from the expressive flexibility of the English tradition, as represented by artists such as Roger Lord and Michael Winfield (with whom Jonathan studied at the Royal College of Music, London), blended with the special richness, vitality and tone colour of the German school as exemplified by the late Lothar Koch of the Berlin Philharmonic. Jonathan plays on instruments made by J. Püchner of Nauheim, Germany, which he has represented in the UK since 1991.
Jonathan's excellent recording of the Strauss Concerto is available on Avie, and his world-class EMI performance of the Vaughan Williams Concerto with the late Vernon Handley remains a recommended recording. His Naxos centenary recording (2006) of William Alwyn's Oboe Concerto received the highest rating for performance from BBC Music Magazine. In 2010 Jonathan recorded an album of English oboe concertos for Dutton Epoch, works by Cyril Scott, Armstrong Gibbs, Christopher wright and Elis Pehkonen.
Jonathan has always been active in contemporary music, and plays regularly with Liverpool Philharmonic’s Ensemble 10:10. He gave the premiere of Mark Simpson’s Nur Musik in 2008, and in January 2009 Jonathan performed Chen Qigang’s Extase II, and he will perform the work again next month at the International DoubleReed Society Convention in New York, USA. September 2010 saw the UK premiere of the oboe concerto by Rodion Shchedrin (commissioned by jointly by the RLPO and Concertgebouw Orchestra) with the RLPO and Vasily Petrenko. Jonathan has previously premiered concertos by Haim Permont, and John Maxwell Geddes. His many solo appearances abroad include invitations to the Czech Republic - where he gave the Martinu Concerto at Prague Spring Festival;Germany, Sweden and Switzerland, USA, Australia.
Jonathan has also enjoyed a long tenure as senior tutor of oboe at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. His former students have gone on to secure careers and positions in orchestras and universities in the UK and abroad.

Jonathan is now also building a career as a conductor, espousing the same values he holds dear as an instrumentalist. He works with professional and amateur ensembles, and recently conducted the wind section of the RLPO in a highly acclaimed performance of Mozart and Richard Strauss. Jonathan has conducted the Wirral Symphony Orchestra since 2008. Under Jonathan’s leadership the WSO is rapidly becoming the leading amateur symphony orchestra in the northwest of England, most recently performing Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony at Chester Cathedral, and Durufle’s Requiem at Notre Dame de Le Havre, in Normandy.
