Peter Moran - Mamuska Background


Music Educators Orchestra

This month (September 2011) I will be taking up my position as Director of the new Music Educators Orchestra. The goal of the orchestra is to provide a creative outlet for people working in music education and related fields. It offers members the opportunity to keep up their musical skills, develop new ones and to bring new ideas to their work.

Visit the Irish Music Education website for more information and details of upcoming performances.

Composition Fellowship

I am very excited to take up a short residency as Composition Fellow at this year's SOUNDscape Festival in Maccagno, Italy, where Bommy will be performed again alongside I'd Like To Thank... and two new works receiving their world premieres.

Feis Ceoil Award

My composition for piano and voice, The Stranger on the Southbound Train has been awarded the Walter Beckett Cup for Original Song in Ireland's Feis Ceoil, 2011. You will be able to hear the song performed live in the National Concert Hall at the Irish Composers' Collective's June concert, Wednesday 22nd.

Competition Prize

I was delighted to be awarded first prize at the 2010 Carl von Ossietsky International Composition Competition in Germany for my guitar trio Bommy. I share the prize with Italian composer Beatrice Barazzoni and the piece will be premiered in Oldenburg in July.

Record Release

Ergodos Records have released the debut album from the Amsterdam-based Trio Scordatura entitled Dubh.

The record features my composition It Is Not True... which was broadcast on Lyric FM's Nova in August. Dubh can be purchased through Ergodos Records or iTunes.
