Jeff Moore is one of Britain’s leading composers for children and professional orchestras.

His works have been played by the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Mozart Players, members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, François-Xavier Roth, Kristjan Järvi and Tasmin Little.  Since his first orchestral work was commissioned by the LSO in 2012, he has written many large-scale pieces for young musicians alongside professional orchestras, with notable performances as far afield as Chile and Sweden, as well as the Three Choirs Festival and a vast string orchestra filling the arena of the Royal Albert Hall.  In 2019 Jeff was named Collaborative Composer in Association by the London Mozart Players, for whom he wrote the grand finale of the Oratorio of Hope, a celebration of Croydon becoming London’s borough of culture in 2023.


Part czardas, part hoe-down, it was nervy with asymmetrical rhythms, pounding tutti chords, and a devilish solo cadenza. It challenged and rewarded every player, and by the look of it, every audience member too.
