Work[edit | edit source]

Davur had initially intended to study the saxophone but ended up having to play the trombone.[1] Although the trombone was not Davur's instrument of choice he has flourished as a trombonist and is now considered to be one of the finest players of his generation.[1] Davur is currently a student at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.[2] Davur is studying for a Bachelor of Music degree. His current teacher is former RSNO principal trombonist Lance Green. This makes the 22-year-old Davur the youngest RSNO member and is one of many young players in the orchestra.[1]
