“Moore displays an eloquence and nobility that one might have thought impossible except by the human voice” - the words of BBC Music Magazine upon showcasing his debut album “Life Force”, released in June 2018.
Peter Moore astounds international audiences with expression directly from the soul and masterful technique, complimented by his boundless versatility and instant personal connection. He has leapt from rising star to become one of the key exponents of his instrument.
In 2018/19 as part of the ECHO Rising Stars Scheme, Moore gave recitals at the Vienna Musikverein, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Cologne Philharmonie and Barbican Centre. He has undertaken recital tours across China, Japan, Korea, Australasia and South America, exhibiting a wide range of repertoire from early Baroque music to romantic Lieder transcriptions whilst introducing new audiences to original trombone works.
As a soloist Moore has appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBCNOW, BBC Concert Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Lucerne Symphony and Polish Chamber Orchestra. He is featured frequently on BBC Radio 3 and was a New Generation Artist between 2015-2017. He has given multiple performances at the Wigmore Hall and in 2018 made his US debut at the Spoleto festival. World premieres by Francisco Coll, Roxanna Panufnik and the UK premiere of James Macmillan’s Trombone Concerto signify Peter’s desire to bring the trombone to the forefront of contemporary music.
Peter came to national attention in 2008 at the age of twelve when he became the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician. He is the Principal Trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra and, having been a member of the LSO since 2014, he will take a sabbatical in 2019/20 to focus on new projects. Alongside his performing career he is Professor of Trombone and Artist in Residence at Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
Peter Moore is a Yamaha International Artist and is grateful for their continued support over the past ten years.
