Anthony Pike was born in Seoul, Korea, and studied the clarinet in London with Julian Farrell, in Chicago with Robert Marcellus and at the Royal College of Music with Dame Thea King.

Anthony is the principal clarinet of the English Chamber Orchestra and has performed concertos with them throughout the world. He also appears as guest principal with many other orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

He has performed as obbligato soloist with the Munich State Opera and in the Musikverein Hall in Vienna. Chamber music collaborators have included Christian Zacharias, Ralph Gothoni, the Medici Quartet, the Joachim Trio, the Bekova Trio and the E.C.O. Ensemble. He is regularly invited to participate in festivals as far afield as Edinburgh, South Africa, Norway, Hong Kong and Bermuda.

Despite reading Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Magdalen College, Oxford, the clarinet began to take up more of his time. As an N.F.M.S./Esso Young Artist in 1990 Anthony gave recitals throughout Britain.

He made his Wigmore Hall debut in 1994 and has since appeared as concerto soloist in the Barbican and Royal Festival Halls in London as well as others worldwide. He is frequently to be heard on B.B.C. Radio Three and his discography includes the Mozart Basset Clarinet concerto and Sinfonia Concertante with the E.C.O., the complete works for clarinet and piano by Max Reger (with Martin Jones) and the Copland Sextet. His recording of the entire clarinet syllabus for the Associated Board is specially sanctioned by them.

Anthony is also a busy studio player and has played on soundtracks for James Bond films, Harry Potter, Romeo and Juliet and most recently Atonement amongst many others. He can also be heard on albums by artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Björk, Robbie Williams and John Barry, and has recently toured with the legendary Lou Reed.
