Performers

The members of Moriarty Winds united over their desire to form an ensemble that could perform a variety of repertoire, from classical to contemporary, in new, characterful and accessible ways. Founded in September 2015, Moriarty Winds met as postgraduate students at the Royal Academy of Music and they will continue at the Academy as 2017/18 Cavatina Fellows. The name 'Moriarty' comes from an appreciation for the Royal Academy's close proximity to Baker Street, home of Sherlock Holmes whose famous adversary was the notorious Moriarty! Graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music, University of Oxford and University of Bristol, Moriarty Winds frequently perform in concerts and festivals in the London area and beyond.

Recent highlights include performances in the Investec International Festival, Royal Academy of Music Chamber Music Series, and Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series. They are also proud to be a resident ensemble in the Wigmore Hall Chamber Tots Series. This July saw them collaborating with New London Chamber Ensemble on Philip Cashian's Settala's Machine for wind dectet as part of a research project into 'side by side' playing.

All members of the ensemble are currently pursuing careers in solo and ensemble performance and they have a combined orchestral experience with ensembles including the European Youth Orchestra, Halle Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Opera North, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Northern Ballet, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra. Their education and creative work has taken them around the UK both as a quintet and independently with groups such as Music for Open Ears, LPO New Horizons and Open Academy. They are hoping to use Janacek's wind sextet Mladi to commission new compositions in response to this fantastic work and to inspire creative musical experiences in local schools.
