The musical career of an exemplary trombonist due to play Campbeltown  has been one of firsts.

Next Wednesday, at a Lorne and Lowland concert, Peter Moore will experience another first when some of Campbeltown Brass’ top musicians play alongside him in a Kintyre Music Club concert.

In 2008, at the age of 12, Mr Moore became the youngest winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition.

Aged 18, he was appointed co-principal trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra and in 2015 joined the BBC Radio Three new generation artist scheme.

The Yamaha international artist has been nominated by the Barbican as a European Concert Halls’ organisation rising star during the 2018/19 season.

In the last two years, Peter has appeared as soloist with the BBC Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ulster Orchestra, Thailand Philharmonic, Barcelona Wind Symphony and Lucerne Symphony orchestras.

Mr Moore will be accompanied by pianist Richard Uttley, noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist.

He won the British contemporary piano competition in 2006 and was represented by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) 2011-17.

He has released three solo recital discs to critical acclaim and his playing has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC Two, BBC Four and Sky Arts.

Recent highlights include recitals in Auditorium du Louvre, Bridgewater hall, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Klangspuren Festival, Konzerthaus Berlin and Wigmore Hall, and tours of China and Columbia.

Richard read music at Clare college, Cambridge, graduating with a double first in 2008, and then studied at the Guildhall school with Martin Roscoe.

He is on the teaching staff at City university and the Guildhall School.

Peter will hold workshops with Campbeltown’s junior and senior brass bands on Tuesday November 28.

The concert is the following day, Wednesday November 29, at 7.30pm in the Lorne and Lowland Hall.

Tickets, available on the door, are £10 for adults and free for children.
