Philip Moore was born in 1976 and is originally from the Vale of Evesham. He studied at London’s Royal Academy of Music with Hamish Milne, during which time he won many prizes. Upon leaving he was awarded the Meaker Fellowship, and was appointed an Associate of the RAM in 2003. In 2004 he became a Steinway Artist.

He has performed in the United States, Canada, Korea, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Tunisia, and at all of the major UK venues. He has recorded for radio and television throughout Europe and appeared as a concerto artist with, among others, the Hallé, Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Philharmonia Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. He is the pianist of the Hebrides Ensemble, a member of the Colin Currie Group and has worked with many international artists, giving duo, chamber music and orchestral performances and broadcasts with LSO, BBC Symphony Orchestra, ECO Ensemble, Britten Sinfonia, Ensemble 360 and Conchord. In 2006 he and fellow-pianist Andrew West began a two-year collaboration with Michael Clark Dance Company, playing Stravinsky’s two-piano version of Rite of Spring at the Barbican Theatre and worldwide on tour. He has recorded for Linn, Nonesuch, Naxos, LSO Live, Signum, Deux-Elles and Delphian Records.

Philip’s piano duo with Simon Crawford-Phillips has won international prizes and awards, including a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2004. They have given world premieres of Detlev Glanert’s Two Piano Concerto; Anna Meredith’s Two Piano Concerto (at the 2009 BBC Proms); and, more recently, Steve Reich’s Quartet for two pianos and two vibraphones, with Colin Currie and Sam Walton, at the Royal Festival Hall, Carnegie Hall NY (listed as one of “The Ten Best Classical Performances of 2014″ by New York Magazine), Kölner Philharmonie, Cité de la musique Paris, and other leading venues. In 2017 they gave the Japanese premiere at Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall.

Highlights of the coming season include a performance of his own piano-duet arrangement of Firebird at the Wigmore Hall with the Nash Ensemble, performances of Petrushka with the LSO and Simon Rattle in London and Paris, and concerts in London, Tokyo and Osaka with LSO Percussion Ensemble, including the London and Japanese premieres of John Adams’s Roll Over Beethoven for two pianos.
