The Artist


From Carnegie Hall to Budapest's Bartok Festival Hall, Garfield Moore has been hailed as a "Master Artist." Critical acclaim has placed him in the light of such luminaries as Rostropovitch, Piatigorsky, and the great Casals.

An "auspicious" New York Recital Debut, world premiere performances and recordings, live solo broadcasts for New York Public Radio and solo tours of Eastern Europe, have all met with distinguished critical praise.

At the age of 13, Garfield Moore premiered the Cello Concerto of the great English Cellist and Composer, Colin Hampton. Subsequent performances of Concertos of CPE Bach, Boccherini, Ibert and Dvorak, all drawing wholehearted critical praise.

Moore has also distinguished himself by reviving heretofore unknown works, enriching the solo cello repertoire.

Moore has served as Principal Cellist for the Pacific Philharmonic, the Santa Cruz Symphony, the Alvin Ailey Ballet, Opera Ebony, the Universal Chamber Orchestra, the West End Symphony and the Musical Heritage Society.

Recognized as an "exciting and dynamic performer,"  Moore was invited to perform the world premiere performance and recording of Allen Brings' Duo for Cello & Piano. He has also inaugurated a number of prestigious concert series, including; those of the Hillwood and Heckscher Museums, the BRIK Gallery and Musica Camerata for SUNYCGCC, where he has performed regularly as "Artist in Residence" for  Gemini Concert Series since 2007.

Most recently his series of recitals at The Bridge St Theatre in NY have all been played to "Sold Out Houses." and, he has been awarded the Certificate for Outstanding Artistic Achievement in New York's Suffolk County.
