John Resek

John Resek was a founder member of the New BBC Orchestra in Bristol, where he received chamber music tuition from members of the world-famous Amadeus String Quartet. There followed a spell playing with violinist Max Jaffa before John settled down as a member of the BBC Philharmonic for many years, travelling as far afield as Brazil and Hong Kong and playing with leading international artists such as Solti, Menuhin and Rostropovich. John left the BBC Philharmonic some time ago to freelance and devote more time to solo playing and chamber music.
John has been leader of the Gorton Philharmonic Orchestra for a number of years, and has made a significant difference to the playing skills of the orchestra.
