Peter Moore - Biography
In 2008, at the age of 12, Peter Moore became the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musicians Competition. At the age of 18 he was appointed co-principal trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra and this season joins the prestigious BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Scheme.
Peter studied with Philip Goodwin at Chetham’s School of Music, and with Ian Bousfield, and has taken part in masterclasses with Hakan Hardenberger, Christian Lindberg, and Joe Alessi. He was selected by Young Classical Artists Trust in 2014, and continues his studies on an advanced performance programme at the Royal Academy of Music.
Engagements during the 2015/16 season include his debut with the Lucerne Symphony, and Thailand Philharmonic Orchestras. He takes part in the Barbican Get Classical weekend, the RNCM Brass Festival, returns to Wigmore Hall and gives recitals throughout the UK.
As a soloist Peter has appeared with the BBC National Orchestra Wales, Northern Chamber Orchestra, Brighton Philharmonic, the Polish Chamber Orchestra at the Rheingau and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals in Germany, and at the European trombone festival The Slide Factory in Rotterdam. He has performed concertos by Mark-Anthony Turnage, Tomasi, Gordon Jacob, Grondahl, Michael Haydn, Larsson, Nino Rota, and Albrechtsberger, and in 2010 his recording of the Gregson Concerto with the BBC Concert Orchestra was released by Chandos to critical acclaim.
Passionate about pushing the boundaries of the trombone and bringing it to a wider audience, in 2015 Peter was appointed an Ambassador for the BBC Ten Pieces project which introduces children of primary and secondary age to classical music.
Since winning the BBC Young Musician he has given recitals at major venues and festivals throughout the UK including Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall, The Sage Gateshead, Saffron Hall, Cadogan Hall, the Proms in the Park (Belfast) and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. Further afield he has toured extensively in Australia and New Zealand, and in 2015 appeared in the International SliderAsia Festival in Hong Kong. In 2013 he won the Wind Section of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition.
