 Update me on new releases by Bean

Hugh Bean (1929 - 2003)

Hugh Bean’s solo career was deliberately understated, his view from the orchestral leader’s seat dissuading him from pursuing stardom. Having begun violin lessons with his father, at nine he went to Albert Sammons and studied with him for almost twenty years. He greatly admired Sammons’s directness and simplicity, emulating these qualities in his own career. He also attended the Royal College of Music, London, where he won the principal violin prize aged seventeen and encountered Vaughan Williams, whose Lark Ascending brought Bean many accolades during his performing career. In his final year of studentship he went to André Gertler in Brussels, winning first prizes for violin and chamber playing.
