Nick Cartledge

Nick Cartledge (born 18 December 1973 in Surrey) is an English classical and jazz flautist, composer and pianist. He studied the flute at the Royal College of Music in London with Susan Milan and is self-taught as a composer.

In 1996, he graduated from the Royal College, having made his Wigmore Hall debut with the guitarists John Williams (guitarist) and Carlos Bonell. The same year he became the first ever flautist to win the Royal Over-Seas League music competition. He was also awarded the Tagore Gold Medal (the Royal College’s highest honour).

Nick Cartledge has appeared as soloist and chamber musician across the world, including performances at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Purcell Room and Queen Elizabeth Hall and the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland as well as in the USA, Canada and Europe. He gave the first performance and made the debut recording of “Star-Drift” by Edwin Roxburgh. He has continued this association through his work with The Warehouse Ensemble, a London-based contemporary music ensemble which Roxburgh directs.

Cartledge has appeared on the soundtracks of several films, including The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and has played on records under his own name and by artists such as Guy Chambers, Sheena Easton and The Divine Comedy (band).

Nick Cartledge’s composing covers both the classical and the commercial spheres. His seven preludes for two guitars (originally piano) were championed by the Eden-Stell Duo, who have since commissioned a new work, to be completed at the end of 2007. Cartledge’s music has been heard on BBC Television, Sky Digital (UK & Ireland), ITV and Channel 4 and Five (channel) in the UK and on NBC in the USA, as well as in Japan, Scandinavia, France, Spain, Australia and South Africa.
