Claude Hobday (1872 - 1954)

Younger brother of violist Alfred Charles Hobday (1870–1942), who was a fellow founder member of the London Symphony Orchestra, Claude Hobday was a major figure of his day in the world of chamber music in Britain. For some thirty-five years he contributed to the South Place Concerts (an enterprise started in 1887 by London’s South Place Ethical Society) and played in many leading orchestras under conductors such as Thomas Beecham, August Manns, George Henschel and Arthur Sullivan. Unlike his Russian contemporary Serge Koussevitzky, Hobday does not appear to have concerned himself with promoting the bass as a solo instrument—perhaps a reflection of the more conservative (and often underfunded) British musical activities of the time.
