Anthony Pike

 

Clarinettist

 

"Anthony Pike shone" 

The Times

Clarinettist Anthony Pike occupies a privileged position in London's musical life. He combines the post of principal clarinet of the English Chamber Orchestra with a busy schedule as a chamber musician and soloist, and is regularly invited to sit as guest principal with the UK's leading orchestras.  He has appeared at festivals as far apart as Hong Kong, South Africa, Norway and Bermuda and has garnered an enviable reputation as a player of committed musicality and uttermost integrity.

 

"The kind of silken, sensuous sound that makes you want to rush off and propose marriage on the off-chance of having children who can play with such beautiful phrasing and technical fluency."
