The Moba is the modern day Stradivarius of the clarinet world. - Peter Cigleris

Biography

English clarinet soloist Peter Cigleris graduated from the Birmingham Conservatoire in 2001. Whilst at the Conservatoire, Peter won the prestigious John Ireland Chamber music award with a performance of that composer’s Fantasy Sonata. He was also awarded a place on the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Training Scheme. Peter went on to graduate from the Royal College of Music in 2002 with a PGDip. During the summer of that year, Peter was awarded the Prix de Fossat and was invited to France to perform for Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark at a private reception.  
 
As a chamber musician Peter works with numerous pianists and musicians including Martin Cousins, John Lenehan and Julian Lloyd Weber. This has lead Peter to perform in the Windsor and Wooburn Festivals and also various music clubs from Scotland to the South of England.  Peter also played with the dynamic Canteloube Trio for many years; they were hand-picked for the Concert Promoters Network for the 2009/10 season. Peter left to concentrate on solo projects such as the making of his debut CD "English Fantasy" released on Cala Records and various projects with Toccata Classics. 
 
As soloist he has performed in many venues across the UK and Europe and premiered several new works for the instrument as well as giving performances of concertos by Mozart, Weber, Finzi and Arnold to name a few. Engagements further afield have included giving a recital and master class at the University of New Hampshire USA as well as working with local high school clarinetists and the Seacoast Wind Ensemble, performances in Russia, Spain for the inaugural Groba Festival and Mexico where Peter performed Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto and gave the Mexican premier of Malcolm Arnold’s 2nd Clarinet Concerto. Peter has also coached chamber music for the Music for You Summer School.
