Peter Josheff
Clarinet and Bass Clarinet

Peter Josheff is active both as a clarinetist and composer, and is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

He performs with Earplay, a San Francisco-based new music ensemble that he cofounded in 1985. He is also a member of the Paul Dresher Ensemble, the Empyrean Ensemble (based at the University of California, Davis), and the Berkeley Contemporary Chamber Players (based at the University of California, Berkeley). He appears frequently with the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and with Composers Inc. Josheff has appeared on many recordings, concert series and festivals devoted to new music, and has had numerous works composed for him.

As a composer Josheff has been the recipient of grants from Meet the Composer and the American Composers Forum, and has been in residence at the MacDowell Colony. Several of his works for piano and other solo instruments have been published by Fallen Leaf Press in Berkeley. His recent work is published by his own Yellow Airplane Music. For the past ten years Josheff has been involved in a collaboration with poet and librettist Jaime Robles with whom he has created many works, most recently, 3 Hands (2003), Diary (2002), and Memento (2001). Each of these pieces has premiered at the Berkeley Art Center as part of Harvest of Song, a collaboration between Josheff, Robles, and baritone/composer Allen Shearer dedicated to the creation of new works for voices.
